Art Classes

"Chloe is an excellent teacher. Before starting these lessons I didn't know one end of a paintbrush from the other. I have just finished a portrait of my Mum and Dad, and all my siblings want a copy. If you are looking towards painting, drawing, sketching then for the price it is excellent value, all the materials are included. Cannot recommend this highly enough."

-Mike Gullick

Art classes for adults

Whether you're an absolute beginner wanting to learn how to draw and paint, or an amateur artist looking to improve their skills, art classes are a great way to gain confidence in producing beautiful pieces of artwork. Regular fortnightly classes are held in an informal, friendly and supportive environment, with everyone able to work on their own individual paintings and drawings with detailed tuition from professional artist and tutor Chloe O'Neil.

 

A wide range of materials are used including watercolours, coloured pencils and pastels on a selection of different subjects - the choice is yours! A selection of quality materials are provided for you to use during the class so you don't need to bring anything with you, but you're also welcome to bring along your own if you'd like advice or guidance on how to get the most out of them.

 

It’s a fantastic fun way of meeting like minded adults and having a relaxing time whilst learning new tips and techniques. If you're interested, come along and have a go - it's the best way of finding out if you will enjoy it!

 

If you want to know what other members have said about the classes, please have a look at some of the art class reviews on Facebook.

Unfortunately, all classes are currently suspended due to the coronavirus.

More information

Please get in touch to enquire about availability.

 

Classes run throughout the year every fortnight, there's no set term or 6 week course. This means as long as there's availability, you can join in with a class at any time of the year!

 

All new members are required to pay for the first 3 classes upfront. It takes a few sessions to get up and running, to start getting to know how it all works, to meet members of the group and make progress on your first piece. It's just like learning to ride a bike or play a musical instrument, it takes a little bit of time to get into it but very rewarding at the end!

 

After the first 3 classes, if hopefully you want to stay and continue, the class fee is paid on the day of the class on a pay as you go basis. They'll always be times you're on holiday or occasionally ill, but I just ask that you attend the majority of classes as a space will be saved for you each week to manage numbers.

 

For anyone who unfortunately can't commit to attending a regular art class, perhaps due to working shifts or childcare commitments, the one-off art workshops may be more suitable.
