Art Classes

Our art classes are tutored by Helen with over 29 years in experience teaching adults providing structured painting and drawing classes for all abilities from complete beginner to professional – all are very welcome. The classes are relaxed, friendly, informative and very supportive, encouraging students to achieve their artistic aims. This is evidenced by numerous students attending Helen’s classes for many years enjoying both the hands-on learning experience together with the warm friendship of like-minded fellow students

All classes are 2 hours in duration (see below). A term varies between 10 and 14 weekly sessions. As an example, a typical 12-week term currently costs £144 i.e. 12 x £12 per class with term dates reflecting those of the local area schools. NB: Regrettably prices may increase in line with inflation.

The class format typically commences with a 15-minute demonstration to introduce the topic, followed by individual attention and if appropriate, further class demonstrations. Subject/topics are diverse and are designed in part from student constructive suggestions. Most art mediums are accommodated with the exception being oil painting, principally due to the transportation of sturdy easels to facilitate the use of canvasses and in some instances, ventilation requirements arising from strong oil vapours.
