Drawing and Painting Classes

In our class we are continuously discovering new mediums and learning new professional drawing and painting techniques. We see developments in each other’s work every single week. Class members enjoy hanging out within a group of like-minded creative people, whist exploring mediums such as watercolour, acrylic painting, pastel painting, pen and ink and mixed media. It is encouraged from the start that you learn to feel comfortable in your own individual artistic ability and that you allow yourself to be creative. Prior experience in drawing is an advantage in these classes, but not essential. $20 for materials. Pay directly to the tutor.
