Reviews of our Art Classes
Originally known as Painting For Beginners, Fitzroy Painting has been running studio-based art classes since 2009. We are proud of our classes, our teachers and the courses we offer. We are especially proud of the students who put their trust in us and leave with a sense of achievement and the skills to continue painting at home. Here are some of their testimonies:
December 2020: Master Copy Portrait Painting Workshop
Really enjoyed this relaxing and friendly workshop with very profession (yet approachable) teachers. Thanks for the lovely time, wonderful food and drink service (COVID-safe of course). This studio space really helps me get motivated to practice, create and paint! See you soon.
December 2020: Drawing Studio Level 1
Just completed my first 4 week drawing class with Ebony. Loved it! A really evocative 19 century studio space. Perfect environment to try a range of techniques. Ebony is really encouraging. I’m enrolling for more classes. Highly recommended.
December 2020: Watercolours Level 1
What a wonderful studio tucked away in Fitzroy. A friend invited me to join her for a class. The instructor was amazing! Attentive, giving all students guidance and direction. The atmosphere was professional – here to get work done; but so warm, welcoming and friendly! I highly recommend this experience whether you’re a seasoned artist or a beginner!
December 2020: Drawing Studio 1
A course I would highly recommend. Each week we covered different drawing methods, materials and techniques. Charcoal, pen, coloured pens and last week ink. The teacher Ebony kept a good balance between allowing time to work on your own and getting constructive feedback. It was also a good bunch of people in the group and we all enjoyed getting out of the Covid lockdown. All in all a highly recommended course.
December 2020: Beginners Oil Painting Level 1
Such a great course! Fun and supportive teaching environment! Even if you think you have no natural ability, try this class and you’ll feel like a pro!
November 2020: Tuesday Morning Studio
Excellent painting class. I started as a beginner and I’m certainly getting better! Great staff and yummy morning tea. This is Melbourne so there is, of course, good coffee.
November 2020: Tuesday Morning Studio
So fantastic to be able to paint again after such a long time in lockdown. It was so lovely to reconnect with our lovely and talented teacher Adriane and our class group. We all mentioned how much we missed our weekly classes and how great it was to be back together again in our creative, happy space.
August 2020: Watercolours for Beginners – Online Workshop
I am a complete beginner venturing out into the artistic field….enrolled in this class, somewhat nervously, and was made to feel completely comfortable from the word go……..Judith was warm, talented and paced the lesson superbly! Thank you for helping me on this journey of exploration!
July 2020: Beginners Oil Painting Level 2
What a wonderful experience. Do it. I learnt so much and found myself in a pocket of timeout from day to day worries and engaged in a challenging but rewarding craft. Thank you.
Classes were great and Judith is an excellent instructor. Every class had a topic, objectives and a bit of homework to keep us motivated. I truly recommend booking the class and add the materials or make sure you have proper ones because it has a huge difference in the result. I had not very good materials, and halfway through the course I decided to get the kit from Fitzroy Painting, and it was totally worthy and absolutely my bad!
March 2020: Watercolours: The Natural World Level 1
I just attended two classes due to pandemic but I already can tell Fitzroy Painting is a nice place to learn painting, this place gives you a cozy and chill feeling with delicious homemade pastry and warm drinks. Judith really knows how to motivate to help everyone to paint 🙂
