With smaller groups of 8-10 artists, our friendly art classes ensures each artist receives plenty of individual attention.


Beginning with drawing skills we will  start our journey with graphite, then charcoal and chalk pastels.  Each week there will be finished works, some on paper to be framed and some on canvas.  After attacking the basics we will move on to pen and ink, oil pastels, acrylic, watercolour and oil.  There will be side trips into printmaking, collage, paper mache, sculpture and basic claywork.  This is a chance to try out every medium to find the ones that spark the artist within.  There will be several opportunities for artist exhibitions throughout the year.


Aprons are supplied but artists should wear older clothing. Water and a snack are provided for the short break during the class.


Materials:  Reasonably priced Art Kits are available for purchase at your initial session.  Access to fixative, unlimited cartridge                          and art paper is included in the course fee.
