Over 14 weeks we will explore four different media:

  • pencil drawing

  • oil pastel

Twelve Masterpieces!

 

After 14 weeks, students have created a minimum of twelve pieces of their very own original art they can enjoy forever, from misty mountain tops to stunning seaside vistas.

 

By the end of our course you will be able to draw and paint things you didn’t dream possible, from picturesque village scenes to sketches of your family, friends and even pets!

We're making our beautiful art here today. Come and join us.

Your art courses are comprehensive.

 

Drawing

Studies, perspective, enlarging, faces and figures.

This first 3 week module gives you some interesting projects and provides the foundation for the rest of the course

Oil Pastels

A bright colourful exciting module – interesting step by step projects that create amazing results for you with our guidance.

Watercolour painting

A very popular medium and easy to use once you know how.

By the end of this module you will have learned all about the colour wheel, mixing, brush strokes and wash techniques, and created 2 or 3 beautiful paintings to be proud of!

Painting with Acrylics

A versatile and enjoyable medium to paint with making it extremely popular with artists.

Our gradual progressive tuition allows you skill levels to increase substantially by this stage of the course and we will complete paintings during this module completely comfortably.

Relax & Have Fun While You Learn

 

All of our training is intended to ensure you progress artistically at a pace you are comfortable with, while seeing improvements in your creative capabilities and self-confidence along the way.

 

The nature of our tuition and the constant assistance available from both our teachers and class assistants will ensure that at this point in the curriculum you have reached a level of skill that encourages you to progress further, and show your friends and relatives the finished pictures you have created during your three and a half months with us.

 

You will leave with a selection of your own original pencil drawings, pastel sketches, acrylic paintings and watercolours to cherish.

 

A high proportion of our students then choose to attend the next set of advanced lessons with us to broaden their skills

"When we were younger, our teachers and parents would discourage us from doing these things, but now, it's time for us to really enjoy all the wonderful skills that we never knew we had".

"My husband and sons never seemed to care about my professional life, but now they can't wait to see what I've created in my art class. They love what I do and I'm so happy about that".

"It has become my favourite time of the week, I've done two courses so far and I'm booked in for the next one.

I've met some really nice people so far and we all enjoy each others growth".

“If you have the dexterity to write, then you have the ability to draw or paint. All you need is the right guidance to help you develop your creative skills and discover your inner artist”.

If you have any questions at all about our art classes, we would be delighted to do whatever we can to help.

 

We have addressed some of the more frequently asked questions below, but if you can’t find the answer you are looking for, please email us (Just click here) and we will do all we can to help you:

How Long Do Your Art Courses Last?

Each of our terms last 14 weeks, culminating in an invitation-only gallery-style exhibition of the pictures you have created during your time with us.

How Long Is Each Lesson?

Individual sessions last 3 hours and are held once a week for each of the 14 weeks. 

You can choose either a morning or afternoon slot to fit in with your other commitments if you wish, subject to availability.

Do I Need To Book In Advance?

Yes, you do.

Our classes are nearly always oversubscribed and it is necessary to pre-book for every course.

What Happens If I Miss A Lesson?

The individual modules are structured in a way that means you can easily catch up, with the tutor and classroom assistant offering one-on-one help where needed.

Are Your Lessons Oversubscribed?

Numbers vary according to the size of each venue, but we aim to keep class sizes small so that everyone gets plenty of individual input from the tutor and class assistant.

 

Please complete our enquiry form to check availability at your nearest class.

Do Many Students Return For Further Tuition?

Numbers vary as you would expect from one course to the next, but a high proportion of our attendees choose to come back straight away for further tutoring or workshops with us, with some attending our modules every single term. 

What Areas Do You Cover?

Currently, we are only operating in Auckland and upper North Island through 2019.

We will be opening new branches all the time, so if you can't see one near you please contact us as we may well be opening one near you soon.

What Mediums Do You Teach?

Our syllabus is suitable for complete beginners who have never drawn or painted before, through to improving artists who have already attended one of our foundation courses. 

You will be given step-by-step training in sketching and drawing techniques, oil pastels, watercolour painting, the comparatively modern medium of acrylics, and finally, picture mounting.

Is Your Tuition Suitable For Beginners?

Yes, is the simple answer. In fact it’s ideal!

Each term starts with an introductory module and the individual sessions are then designed for students who are learning to paint and draw for the first time.

What Happens If I’m More Experienced?

If you are a returning pupil looking to improve your artistic skills after attending a previous foundation-level art course with us, you will paint different projects to the beginners and receive a level of teaching that is appropriate to your experience.

What Age Range Do You Teach?

All of our lessons are intended for adults only, with attendees ranging in age from 18 to 90+.

Many are ‘active retired’, keen to take on a new creative hobby now that they have a bit of extra time on their hands, and our weekly meetings offer a chance to socialise and mix with like-minded people, creating many long-lasting friendships.

Will I Be Able To Paint & Draw By The End Of The Term?

Everyone learns at a different pace and the individual pupil’s levels of achievement do vary, but our teaching will bring out the very best of your artistic talent, we promise! 

If you are willing to listen to the tutor and are receptive to what you are taught, you will become an ‘enthusiastic amateur artist’ and learn to paint competently by the end of the 14 weeks, creating pictures you will be proud to show to your friends and hang on your walls at home.
