You may join at any point during the term and attend weekly or casual classes. Beginners through to the more advanced art student/participant of any age welcome. We offer adults classes, as well as classes for children and teens. If interested in our drawing course and workshops, please email a request as these may be booked out.
Your teacher will create a plan with you based on your current skill levels and aims/goals. The content of classes remains flexible due to the nature of the students in each class. Our programs are tailor made to each student with the group in mind. Some classes are more structured and others offer micro lessons within a studio style of class. Groups are kept small and only a few beginners taken on at a time to give the appropriate amount of time required.
MEDIUMS WE TEACH:
- Drawing (Beginners course through to advanced participants)
- Watercolour painting (foundations/contemporary)
- Clay making (Beginners)
Wire, plaster, mixed media
Our teachers are experienced teachers and visual artists - much of their experience and time goes into the classes for each student to develop the necessary creative and technical skills for individual purposes (eg. hobby, to exhibit, relax time, as a developing artist, to be a professional creative).
We have a detailed information package available. It describes our class structure, teacher pedagogy, our philosophy as an art school and how we cater for the individual in our classes.

Workshops & Art Courses
A variety of workshops and art courses are on offer on a regular basis throughout the year.
Workshops are generally only a few hours long and students aim to have one finished art piece by the end of it.
Art Courses include topics such as: technical drawing skills, foundational drawing, watercolours for beginners and intermediate students, soft pastels and portraits, life drawing lessons.
Courses run over a number of weeks or a term and focus on specific art techniques, styles and artists with the aim for students to develop greater confidence with these areas in order to apply this understanding to their own art pieces. Course topics change on a term by term basis.
