Drawing and Painting Fundamentals for Teens


Restrictions are now easing, so we also feel comfortable easing some classes back into our studio. Our spacious studios allow plenty of room to meet the 4 square meter rule for the number of students we have in our classes. In coming back to the studio, everyone must continue to practise physical distancing and good hand hygiene.

We have put additional measures in place to ensure our students and tutors are in a safe environment. We now require kiss and drop for children – no need for parents to sign in, we will do this for you. Find out more about our Covid-19 Safe Measures here.

We are also continuing some classes via zoom for students preferring online learning at this time. Please check the location details with the class information before enrolling.
