The studio-based course focuses on portraits – you’ll learn how to develop whatever you’ve brought, or use famous portraits, to create pictures of people.One-to-one sessions also available.
B. Art Attack!

Discover, too, how to put a book together, with a professional-looking cover designed and hand-printed by you. Perfect for anyone considering further studies in art.
C. Art and Imagination

You’ll go home with a folder of work, perfect to present when applying for a higher-level art course. Individual classes also available.
Draw and paint in different situations – in the studio or even in the park! Gallery visits are also included, and you’re taught how to base your work on studies of landscapes and portraits by well-known artists. Teachers also encourage you to experiment with various styles and methods.
