Adult, teen and child classes

Our aim is to inspire all artists, from beginner to advanced level, to develop their skills in fine art and surprise themselves with their creativity through art classes!

We offer drawing and painting classes for every age, as well as a special pottery class with air dry clay for children. Our teachers are experienced artists in acrylics, oils, watercolours, pastels and/or print making. Our youngest student is 6 and the oldest is 94 years!
