Painting Skills for Absolute Total Beginners

Hello there beautiful Arty Beginner!

I often hear adults say to me “Oh, how I would love to learn to paint.. but I just cannot do it!”

or I hear, “ I want to find an art class that let’s me paint how I want to paint, and not follow the teacher all the time”

Or I hear… “ I want to be free to explore my creativity”

Does this sound like you?

The good news is I know I can help you! So you are in good hands.

I can teach you all you are willing to learn about painting and have you step into the fun and joy, free personal self expression…. because I show the techniques and skills as you go in such an easy way that painting becomes easy for you.

Welcome to Painting for Absolute Total Beginners Workshops Series!

This is an art experience where you DON’T have to know anything about art- and I prefer it that way!

I have created a two week beginner mini painting course! In these classes you will learn how to work with acrylic paints and other interesting fun painting media.

We will teach you how to use a wide variety of painting materials and mediums so that you create the painting you really want to see on your wall! We believe in individuality, and you finding your own way through painting.

Our two week painting mini course is enough time for you to complete one canvas artwork which opens you to the world of paint and also you can make an informed decision whether painting is for you.

Either way, you will be happy with your creation.

My experience as an arts educator for many years has taught me that once you have the materials, tools, skills and techniques under your belt you become limitless in possibilities!!

Our adult art classes are currently held every Wednesday. Our motto is RELAX- PLAY- CREATE and we really encourage you to step into utilizing your painting time to relax, and just enjoy the whole process of being led into the painting process.

Our painting classes are held every Wednesday at 10am to 12pm. It does not matter what skill level you have, and there is no need to bring anything as all materials are included in the price.

To book with us please call the studio, and if you want to have a “sticky Beak” by all means pop in while class is on!
