Adults Art Classes


Art is good for you!!

Come and explore your artistic side in our fun and relaxing Adult Art Classes! Learn to draw, use oil pastels, pen and ink, paint (oils and acrylics) or try your hand at mixed media including simple print and collage.


Most new comers start with our drawing class and once the basics are grasped move onto the joys of painting and working in colour. We will enable you to confidently develop your artistic skills and teach you the foundations of drawing-shape, line, shading and tone. This will then be applied to different subject matter, such as still life’s, figures, landscapes, etc


Working in Oils or Acrylics (or both) these classes will enable you to confidently develop your own artistic style and experiment with the possibilities of these versatile mediums. I can support experimentation within your painting to include collage, simple print and mixed media. You will be expertly guided from initial ideas through to finishing your own masterpiece!!
