Whangarei Fritter Festival

Sorry, this event has been and gone.

Come and join us in our weekly art classes suitable for total beginners!

In our classes, we specialise in teaching Total Beginners.

Our approach to teaching is quite different from most art schools as we use a specific picture as a means to teach you lots of techniques, such as drawing techniques, applying layers, composition, problem solving, applying realistic detail and lots of tips that we have gathered or developed over the past 30 years.

All of this with step by step instructions in a small class with two tutors so you get lots of one on one attention means you can easily learn these techniques no matter if you don't have any natural art talent or experience.

Once you have these techniques you can then use them on your own artworks at home where you will gain confidence by developing your own drawings.

And the bonus is that you get to take home a drawing that will impress your family and friends and good enough to put straight up on the wall!

Together we make sure your art experience is fun and positive with lots of encouragement and patience. You will get lots of support after hours and during the classes. Your success is very important to us.

Mediums you can expect to use are Pencil, Charcoal, Oil Pastels, Pen, Coloured Pencils.

Your first term with us will be learning to draw Portraits in pencil.

6 Week terms - 3 hour classes - $300 + $38 for art stationery for new students Or email -
