THE FITZROY PAINTING STUDIO IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED DURING THE CURRENT MELBOURNE LOCKDOWN.

We are contactable by email during this time, and will reschedule all classes once we know when we can reopen.

About us: 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 in oil painting, drawing and watercolours are designed for the complete beginner, taking you through a series of exercises and building your skills week by week. 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 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!

01 July 2020 • 4-Week Beginners Oil Painting Course: Level 1

The instructor was not very good at verbally explaining things while painting, or not very good at multi-tasking. Given that the classes are 3 hours, this takes up some of the time that students can use on their own or have one-on-ones. There are more students than I expected. But things changed now.

Hi Wyanet, thanks for your feedback. It is disappointing to hear that the course was not up to your expectations, and a little surprising as we receive so many very positive reviews for this course. It would have been helpful to let us know either by email or during class so that we could address your concerns, but seeing as you did not make it to the last class we will be in touch to offer you a make-up class to cover what you have missed. Kind regards,

Adriane

I had attended 2 of 4 lessons which was then interrupted by the Coronavirus outbreak. So far I am happy with the professionalism and friendliness of the tutor and am looking forward to resumption of lesson hopefully in the near future.

Thank you for leaving us a such a lovely review Ignatius, despite only being able to attend two classes! We look forward to getting the gang back together once this is over, so you can complete the course. In the meantime stay safe and well, and if you're painting at home get in touch and we can give you some tips. Warm regards from all of us at Fitzroy Painting.
