Anise Art

A calming sanctuary for relaxation and a working space to simply create.


Art Classes, Workshops & Art Spas at Anise Art Spa Studio

Our Art Classes and Workshops are designed for the beginner as well as the experienced artist. We cater for individuals young and old, as well as groups large and small, corporate functions, and we will soon be a NDIS provider. If you have never painted before you will learn how to create a really amazing art work, and learn about the artistic process as well, and develop some new skills. My method of teaching any art form means that you can learn to complete an art piece that will amaze your family and friends, even yourself! This is my mastery. My ability to teach you where you are and take you to the next level of your creativity is my aspiration. Demonstration is a powerful tool for learning. We utilize this teaching method in all our teaching.
