Have you ever wondered if you could paint or draw?

Are you curious about what you could create?

When you were a kid did you love to draw and colour and paint?  Have you always felt there was something in you that could be arty, but low marks and a flippant remark from a teacher or friend left you feeling like art wasn’t for you… so you let it go and got on with growing up, being sensible and responsible and ignoring that yearning to create and make art. If you’ve been putting it off, now is the time to have another go. You’ve found yourself here for a reason and you never know what will happen tomorrow, so don’t die with the art still inside you.

Join me for Online Pastel Art Classes for Adult Beginners!

Come and learn how to use pastels to create beautiful art; we’ll cover colour theory, blending techniques and loads of other tips and tricks as well as hands-on pastel painting and tutoring.  In each class we have a set subject and tutoring is step-by-step, so everyone paints the same thing at the same time and most of the time we get a whole painting complete in one class. Subjects vary and we cover a range of genres such as landscapes, animals, and still life. 

There are currently two levels of Online Pastel Art Classes available, Intermediate and Beginners. Both classes are held on Friday each week with the Intermediate Class in the morning (9.30 – 12pm) and the Beginners Class in the afternoon (1pm – 3.30pm). That way new people can join me without feeling overwhelmed and current students can continue to grow and expand their art, which means I get to do the same, so we all benefit.

Don’t wait any longer – book your place today.


Intro to Soft Pastels – 6 Week Course

The Intro to Soft Pastels Course is back and it’s LIVE in Brisbane!

This 6-week course is especially designed for the absolute adult beginner who wants to do art and learn how to paint with pastels. No experience is necessary, this course is designed for you if you haven’t done art since school and you want to give it a go. Classes will be held every Wednesday afternoon for 6 weeks, commencing on the 24th February at Mount Ommaney, Brisbane.

Come and learn about soft pastels, how to mix and blend and to paint varying textures such as smooth and shiny or soft and furry. We’ll cover a range of subjects including animals, landscapes, flowers and clouds. This course is a great basic starter where you’ll have the opportunity to experience making art with beautiful pastels in a comfortable non-competitive space. Each class is run in a step by step format, where we paint together and you’ll get to take home a finished piece of art each week that you can be proud of.
