Acrylic painting classes

Explore your creativity and treat yourself to a fun painting weekend workshop or 6 week series.

As an enthusiastic artist, it is often a challenge to decide how to use my art time, there are always so many wonderful things to make and create and never enough hours in the day.

I have always had an interest in painting and I use acrylics because they dry so quickly and there is instant gratification. I have decorated many items over the years to sell or to give as gifts and acrylics always look great with a coat of varnish or resin.

In these courses you will have the opportunity to work in the way that suits you, while learning and trying new techniques and methods. My task being to facilitate, guide and motivate you to develop a style for your personal taste.  

Studio 88 has a relaxed and calm atmosphere and students are encouraged to make themselves at home. We are all learning, and there no place for judgement and criticism, only support and encouragement. That doesn't mean we don't stretch and challenge you to get the best out of you. 


Art for Anxiety Classes

Teen Course:

When young people have an outlet to express their feelings, say through music, dance, drama, art or creativity of some kind, it enables the build up of anxiety to weaken and eventually dissolve. An after-school Art for Anxiety class has been created to address this need in young people.

The course aims to allow self-expression through drawing and painting, class discussion, interactive drawing therapy and more. We are not meeting to dwell on the negative, but to focus on possibilities and build confidence and courage through art and creativity. This small group is nurtured, guided and supported to express themselves safely in a creative environment with the added bonus of meeting like-minded others on the same journey.









I've learned so much from my mistakes I was thinking of making more - just come and have fun!
