Learn the magic of painting from the ground up! No experience necessary.
In the adult painting classes, we will go through the basic techniques of your chosen medium (watercolour or acrylic), from colour mixing to composition. You will acquire the skills and tips you need to create beautiful paintings in a range of styles. We also discuss the world of art, amazing artists and fascinating tidbits of art history.
A materials list will be supplied upon sign up for any of the adult classes.
Workshops are the perfect way to dip your toes into creativity. Join me for a spell and discover a new hobby, improve your skills or just have a good time with kindred spirits.
In each workshop, we will tackle the subjects of how to find inspiration, use reference images and discover your personal style. You will be introduced to the basics of watercolour painting and receive hands on guidance on how to compose and craft beautiful art. We will also touch on topics like colour theory, creative process and art history.
Each ticket includes light refreshments, a little gift bag and, if you opt in, new art materials to take home with you, along with your creations. Ticket prices vary according to workshop.

En Plein Air
Let’s get outside and sketch!
En plein air painting and drawing is all about getting outside and capturing what you see in the real world. We’ll talk about composition and drawing from life. Weather permitting, we’ll head outside and try our hand at all sort of subjects, from urban sketching and gesture drawings. On the days the weather isn’t so fabulous, we can meet at specific locations in the city such as a gallery or botanical conservatory, for example.
