I hold evening and afternoon art classes at my studio in Dundee
and also run a programme of art holiday workshops. I cater for all levels of students, with an emphasis on enjoying the occasion as well as learning to paint.
NEW ART HOLIDAY WORKSHOPS 2010
Programme of one day workshops planned to run on one Saturday every month.

All my students have at least one painting published in a special exhibition page on my website. Have a look at their work at www.johnstoa.com/artclassexhibition.htm
My studio has a large window with panoramic views over the River Tay, and is surrounded with a large well stocked garden full of flowers, shrubs, exotics, fruit trees, glasshouse and several sunny patios.
Workshop students enjoy our Scottish hospitality and excellent home cooking.
I regularly give art demonstrations to Scottish art societies.
