Beginners Open Studio is for  students who have already completed our beginners course, and wish to continue painting with us on a regular or casual basis. If you are looking for extra studio time, and want to further develop your practice with guidance and feedback from a tutor, this is the class for you! 

Designed as an extension of our Beginners Level 1 & 2 programs, past and current beginners are welcome to join us to begin exploring their own interests and direction, as well as receive constructive feedback, practical advice, technical assistance and peer support. There will be optional exercises available for students who wish to join in.

Beginners Open Studio runs on Sunday afternoons and is booked online via our website. Come as often as you like, simply purchase a single or block of class passes and book in whenever you wish. Class passes give you a unique code to book in easily without going through checkout each time, and are valid for three years. You can save by buying multiple passes.

About us: Established in 2009 and based in a Victorian heritage building overlooking bustling Brunswick Street, Fitzroy Painting 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 Courses Level 2 in both painting and drawing..  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 class-passes for ongoing students at a discounted rate. Some of our students have gone on to Higher Education courses and are now exhibiting professionally!

Evening classes include wine and refreshments, 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, 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!
