Description

Established in 2009 and based on the top floor of a Victorian heritage building overlooking bustling Brunswick Street, Fitzroy Painting for Beginners is the original and best of private art classes in Fitzroy! A working artists studio, the space provides a great environment to develop your painting and drawing skills with the expert support and guidance of highly qualified teachers and full-time professional artists.

Our 4 - Week Beginners Courses are designed for the complete beginner, taking you through a series of exercises and building your skills week by week as you produce paintings to take home. Students may choose to continue to our Beginners Course: Level 2. Ongoing students are supported to help develop their own direction, with optional exercises offered to expand on skills and knowledge, and our Atelier students are assisted in taking it to the next level in professional practice.

Love the class? All students wishing to extend their course may purchase 4 or 8 - week blocks for ongoing students at a discounted rate. Some of our students have gone on to Higher Education courses and are now exhibiting professionally!

Need to miss a class? We understand busy lives and offer flexibility - just let us know in advance and we'll credit you a class. (Maximum of 2 changes per 8 weeks, ongoing and Atelier students only).

Evening classes include wine and cheese, and morning classes include tea, coffee and cakes. Classes run for 3 hours and basic equipment is available for student use at the studio, including easels, aprons, palettes and drawing boards. We believe in safe studio-practice and provide low-toxic, low-odour materials for student use, as well as high-quality clean-up materials for brushes and hands. We also have storage facilities if you wish to keep your materials at the studio.

Each student works at their own pace and receives one-on-one attention, and all students are invited to exhibit in our annual end of year exhibition, a fun opportunity to show family and friends what you’ve been doing!

11 December 2018 • 4-Week Beginners Oil Painting Course: Level 1

I’m so glad that I attended the 4-Week Beginners Oil Painting Course, I walked away with so much needed fundamental principals, each week is a block of a clever modular building approach and at the end of the course all comes together in the final painting exercise. I had the privilege to learn from Adrianne and John both are very professional and excellent teachers, John’s watchful aye followed by on the spot advice and demonstration saved me from reinforcing my mistakes, thanks to Adrianne now I think about color harmony and I’m getting better at planning and organising my palette. Highly recommended.

Beautiful location, exceptionally knowledgeable and friendly instructor. Small class size. Well laid out class program, relaxed and to the point. I would highly recommend this class for an insight into the wonderful world of oil painting.
