Artist and art teacher, Bonny Hut, aims to create a class that is uplifting, fun, inspiring and very informative.


Watercolor, Oil painting and Acrylic. 


Although Bonny's own work leans towards surrealism, visionary art or imaginary realism she teaches mostly traditional realism as this is the basis of most art styles. She also teaches abstract as many of the principles of painting are similar in abstract and realism and some of her own painting also combine these two ways of painting. Bonny likes to teach the student to "paint in their own voice" and to find their own unique, personal, genre and style. 


Each week we  will  focus on a particular aspect of painting and a relevant theme . Then Bonny will proceed to assist each artist individually with the piece that they are currently working on. Remember you learn as much from your piers as you do from the teacher !

Aspects of painting that are taught include: 

  • Different methods of painting.
  • Colour mixing
  • The psychological, spiritual and illusionary aspects of color. 
  • Paints pigments and their qualities. 
  • Art materials. 
  • Elements of design
  • Reference material & ideas
  • Drawing and composition.
  • Perspective. 
  • The principles of creating mood.
  • The principles of engagement in art. 
  • Structure and construction of elements. 
  • Tone secrets.
  • The psychology of art and reasons why we paint.
  • Motivation, inspiration and work ethics.
  • Secrets of the art world itself.
  • ... and MUCH more ...

Please note that Bonny only offers inspiring, helpful, and respectful constructive criticism or comments to her students and it is a requirement that the other attendees do the same if they would like to say something about another student's work. 


Bonny Hut has had an art school called the "Alchemy School of Art" since 2002.
