With small classes of up to 7 students, children get plenty of individual attention from our expert tutors, and the chance to learn simple drawing and composition, use of the palette knife, brush techniques, colour mixing and more. 

Your child’s 10 x 2 hour sessions can be taken once weekly or more frequently by appointment, subject to availability.  These are popular classes, so there might be a waiting list.
