  • Acrylic Workshops
    Bold, expressive strokes generally define acrylic paintings and you too can learn to paint in this style with our brilliant acrylic workshops.
  • Coloured Pencil Workshops
    The high accuracy achieved with coloured pencils is a truly enviable skill, our artists are here to show you how.
  • Pastel Workshops
    Soft pastels are hugely popular, the strength of pigment able to be applied in one stroke is satisfying, as well as the softly graded blends that can be easily achieved under the careful guidance of our artists.
  • Oil Workshops
    Oil paints are the classic medium to paint with and the favourite of the old masters, sometimes viewed as difficult or cumbersome to work with, our artists will show you how easy they can be!
  • Mixed Media Workshops
    If you're looking to have the most fun in your artwork you should certainly try experimenting with mixed media, these exciting workshops by our artists will help you feel at ease with letting your creativity flow!
