Painting & Arts Combo

Go Beyond Drawing

 Painting, journalling and sculpting are the natural next step after learning to draw. Our unique and systematic teaching process provides students with “take-home” knowledge and skills that promotes independence.

We offer introductory classes in watercolour, acrylic painting & arts combo. Intermediate students are welcome to join instructor-lead projects, or bring in their own projects to work on alongside other students and receive mentorship from our artist instructor.
