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 92 years!

Life Drawing Group
On the third Saturday of the month (except October), we host a life drawing session. A clothed model will pose and the class will draw him/her.
Sonja Frenz, art teacher and co-owner of Creative Arts Atelier, presents practical tips and information on the second Friday afternoon of each month. Talks range from how to set up a studio to lighting and colour mixing. Students may attend for free, while visitors pay a nominal entry fee. Bookings are essential.
We are proud of our students’ work, and arrange public exhibitions where their work can be displayed.
Some of these exhibitions are:
- the ‘Little Gems’ art exhibition in the Durbanville Public Library.
- the ‘Durbanville En Route Festival’ held annually in June / July
- held in association with Rust & Vrede Gallery. The 2017 exhibition coincided with the opening of Heritage Square in Durbanville.
