Established in 2009 and run by professional artists and highly qualified teachers, Fitzroy Painting for Beginners began when a need for a ‘back to basics’ method of teaching was identified. Our studio-based classes provides a great environment to develop your painting and drawing with the support and guidance of full-time professional artists. We also have occasional guest artists teaching and running workshops.
Ongoing classes are available for students who wish to continue their painting classes with us at a discounted rate, our thanks for choosing to continue! During this time students are encouraged and assisted to explore their own direction, or to further develop their skills with ongoing feedback and optional class exercises.
