All art teachers at Fitzroy Painting are professional practicing artists with teaching experience who love to share their knowledge. Exhibiting regularly nationally and internationally, our teachers work in a variety of mediums, from painting and drawing through to sculpture, installation and paste-ups. Each teacher has had formal art training and each brings their own unique perspective, knowledge and skills to the studio. You are in good hands!
We also invite visiting artists to the studio as guest tutors to run fun, one-day specialised workshops covering a range of materials and techniques where students can try new techniques and materials, and take home finished work. We currently offer workshops in watercolours, drawing, oil painting materials and techniques, abstraction and portraiture. Our oil-painting portrait tutors are the 2018 Archibald Prize winner Yvette Coppersmith, and Troy Argyros, currently undertaking academic training at The Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy.
You can find out more about all of our teachers, their current work and upcoming exhibitions by following the links under each artist bio on this page.
