Peter March 2017: Really enjoyed the first 4 week beginners class in Oil Painting, with both John and Kez teaching at different times. Stepped us through some real fundamentals, shading, tonal painting, color wheel, shadows and more, and inspired me to book into the next level for beginners.

Alicia March 2017: A great introduction to the basics of painting such as colour, tint and shade. Learning to blend and paint real life pictures. It also included an introduction to composition and how to interpret shapes and shadow from the eye to the canvas.

Ross February 2017: I learned so much from this class – basic colour theory, composition, seeing light, how to use oil paint (more to it than I thought!), and even how to clean up easily! Adriane and Kez were patient but prepared to challenge you. Thanks! I will be back for the next level!

Lauren November 2016: I really enjoyed this 4 week class. The instructors were skilled and friendly, and I learned a lot about how to paint. It’s given me the confidence to continue painting at home. My friends and family now think I’m a pro! The cheese and wine are a nice addition too. I’d recommend purchasing the kit, it took the stress out of getting the right materials.

Kaushi October 2016 The class was awesome!

Claire June 2016: Great class, with excellent introduction to colour and painting technique/ Lets you go at your own pace with very supportive and constructive feedback.

Alanna June 2016: I thoroughly enjoyed Painting for Beginners. Some of the area’s covered included: mixing colours, shading, medium & glaze techniques. John was a great teacher; he was approachable, friendly & entertaining. The small class size enabled John to give constant feedback on our work, I felt comfortable asking questions. The cheese, wine & tea supplied during the class was delicious. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn how to use oil paints or to further their skills in the area.

Maree April 2016: Great supportive class

Louise April 2016: Absolutely loved it! Good environment, excellent teacher. As an absolute beginner I felt comfortable and supported and I learnt a lot. I was amazed with the level of paintings we all produced.

Rhonda March 2016: Money well spent. I learnt more than I thought I possibly could in just 4 weeks. You only need blue, red, yellow and white paint to make any colour, even black!! The studio is situated in a wonderful old building with a lot of character. Our instructor Kez, was welcoming, friendly and very knowledgable (a great artist). I haven’t stopped telling people how much I enjoyed the beginners course. I plan on going back later in the year. Can’t wait!

Amanda March 2016: Great experience

Sarah March 2016: The class was fantastic! A really great atmosphere to learn in and for someone who has never painted before I felt no expectations or judgment. Lovely group of people, wonderful teacher and a nice relaxed space to learn in

Lynette Feb 2016: One of the best things I have done. I went from not having picked up a paint brush since kindergarten to confidently doing paintings that are now hanging on my wall. It is a very relaxed, supportive and fun atmosphere to learn in.

Tom June 2015: Just the best environment to learn and enjoy the experience.

Kate June 2015: I’ve learnt so much with Adriane. My painting has really improved and I have a much better awareness of colour, tone, overall composition and various techniques using acrylic and oil paints. I love the informal class structure and the expert advice she provides.
