Painting Skills for Absolute Total Beginners

As the title says these workshops are or those adults who would really love to learn how to paint! I know how you may feel! Most of us really feel we do not know how to paint because no one has actually shown you how. I know that school did not show you! The truth is everyone can paint artistically, you just do not know that you can! That is where I come in!

I know there are lots of adults out there who would love to learn how to paint something, but do not want to join a long art course, or sit with a bunch of really good artists and feel totally out of their depth.
I have been teaching Art for a very long time, and I know exactly what you would love to do.
This is why I created this simple two session course where you can learn how to paint something you can be proud of.

This is an art experience where you DON’T have to know anything about art. No matter what you think about your own ability I can teach you. I prefer it you didn’t have any art experience because I know you will be open to following my guidance.

I teach you to paint a subject matter you really love! So Come on give us a try!


This is a 2 week mini course held every 2nd and 3rd Tuesday of the month starting from 10am – 12noon
