    Beginners and experienced painters welcome

Love art? Come and join us!

Come and enjoy a couple of hours a week with other art lovers who are discovering or improving their artistic skills. Both beginners and experienced painters are most welcome – don’t worry if you’ve never picked up a brush before – you’re not alone and our classes aren’t the least bit intimidating! Equally, if you’ve been a painter for years, you will find yourself in good company. You can learn painting in watercolour, oils, pastels, acrylics and drawing, so come and see what you can achieve – you’ll be surprised (and I hope, delighted). If you’re not a better picture maker by the end of the term I’ll eat my paintbrush!

The classes are relaxed and friendly – we don’t run prescriptive sessions – I think it’s important that everyone needs to be enthused about what they want to achieve so our tutors and I will happily give you guidance and teaching around what you would like to paint or draw.

Look forward to seeing you!

What will I learn?

During the classes, your tutor will offer you support and guidance on how to start or improve your paintings. Even if you are a complete beginner you will find their friendly approach and help will give you confidence and start you off well on your first artwork. If you are a more experienced painter you will enjoy the advanced skills of our tutors to help you produce good quality paintings.

When you join one of the clubs, you will receive a file for you to keep which will contain tutorials for the whole term. Each term’s tutorials build up into a manual which you can refer back to while learning your skills,

At each class your tutor will go through one tutorial, from the beginnings of composition and understanding tone for instance, through to the more advanced tutorials in order to build up your knowledge of art and picture making.

Twice a term, instead of the usual tutorial, your tutor will give you a presentation called The Story Behind the Painting. This is a chance to look in detail at a particular work of art, the artist’s life and the historical context of the painting.

How much are the classes?

Each two hour class costs £13.00 (£6.50 per hour) – £130.00 for a ten week term. When you join you will receive a file of tutorials and a membership card which will allow you a discount on your art supplies at various local outlets. We also provide refreshments at all our clubs at no extra charge.
