Our painting classes are not coordinated around a set curriculum, instead we work with individuals according to their specific needs. We are open to all those wanting to learn and practice the rich language of oil painting while pursuing their own particular interests and concerns (in terms of subject and application).
We support people in developing creative visual strategies, confidence and competence with the technical aspects of working in oils, and workshop ideas to establish rigorous thinking in the art making process where desired.
The class runs from 9am to 4 pm, the studio provides easels, side tables and space to store the painting you’re working on and your box of materials for the time between classes. Access to the studio outside of class times is encouraged so that people can get as much time as they want behind the easel, there is a fee of R 350 p/m for key rental, and on condition that the studio ethos of respectful irreverence is maintained.
