Intermediate & Advance Drawing & Painting Classes


Our Intermediate/Advanced Art Classes are held in our art studio in Chancery Lane. In these classes, students will aim to refine previously acquired skills and techniques.  Alongside mastering materials such as graphite, charcoal, pastel, oil pastel, oil paints, watercolour, acrylic, you will also explore and experiment with mix media techniques. Subjects include still life, sculptures, landscapes, animals, portraits, and the human form.

Class themes include life drawing, portraits, still life, landscapes, old masters, cast drawing and plein air painting.

In our Painting Course, you can approach media such as oil painting, acrylic painting, watercolours, while during the Drawing Course you can learn and practice with charcoals, pencils and pastels.

How to study art classes regularly?

In addition, after you finish a package, you can choose to continue your learning with our exceptional team through rebooking or choosing a new personalized package. Many of our alumni students choose to master a particular medium/s, develop a genre or wish to try something new.

HOW CAN WE PROVIDE YOU WITH A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE?

Bespoke Study Plan to Ensure Our Art Course in London Is the Most Suitable for You
During your first art lesson, you will have an introductory session with a dedicated art tutor to help you understand what you will need to focus on, and your skill level. This art lesson allows the tutor to create a personalised Study Plan and art course structure that will be most suitable for you. This Study Plan will provide an overall structure that lays out what you should follow and achieve during your course to maximise your results.

Different Art Tutors from the Best Art Academy
Our tutors designed and created each of our art courses. They are expert, refined art tutors with prodigious backgrounds from the best international academies and universities such as the Royal Academy of Art and Central Saint Martins in London, the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and Athens Academy in Greece. Our art tutors have years of experience teaching art students from all over the world. By virtue of  being able to book art lessons taught by different tutors, you can explore different perspectives and approaches on some critical issues covered in this art course. Our tutors work closely together to provide a coherent structure and experience throughout your time here.

Small Groups with Bespoke Art Tuition
We always limit each of our art classes to less than 10 art students, allowing our teachers to work closely with every student and provide individual guidance. According to each student’s Study Plan, during each lesson, the teacher will arrange the most suitable subject for you and will teach each student appropriate techniques.

Flexible Timetable to Let You Choose the Days You Want to Attend
When you purchase a course package (e.g. a 60 art lessons course), it will be transferred to your online account. You will be able to log-in and use your course package to book any available art class at the centre or via the live online group art tuition platform (see timetable section below). We have art classes every day, and you can book them at any time. Because you can book the time slots that are most suitable for you, you can also choose your starting date as well.

Flexible Credit System to Save You Money
One lesson will be taken from your package only when you book a class. Therefore, you don’t have to book and use all the lessons immediately, but you can book them as you progress with the art course. The system is just like an Oyster Card; you use as you go.

Our Tutors Will Update Your Progress on Your Account After Each Lesson
After each art lesson, our tutor will leave internal feedback for other tutors to see. This information briefs art tutors from different time slots on your progress, including what you did in the previous art lessons and what you should do in the upcoming ones. Therefore, even if you leave for a holiday break, when you return, all your progress history will be saved there for our tutors to use to resume your art lessons.

Manage Your Bookings from Your Online Account
You can easily cancel, reschedule and book your art lessons all from your online account. Please note that we have a 48H cancellation and reschedule policy. We recommend booking art classes at least 2 days or earlier to guarantee enough availability of seats and to give you enough time if you need to reschedule/cancel the session.

ART MATERIALS PACKS

Using the right art materials plays an essential role in the art course.  You can prepare your art materials by yourself from this list, to avoid the trouble of mistakenly purchasing the wrong art materials. Our art tutors have designed a variety of drawing and painting art materials packages specifically for our art courses with promising quality. They contain all the necessary art tools that you will need to use during the art lessons. You can pre-order online in the checkout page, or via this link: Art Material Packages.

HOW TO STUDY ART CLASSES REGULARLY

Many of the greatest artists throughout history trained for years to master their craft. For artists such as Turner and Millais who trained at the Royal Academy of Art (RA), London would have studied up to 10 years, and for many of the RA students, the first four years were dedicated to only drawing. To achieve a high academic level in drawing and painting, one needs to continue their growth through learning under expert guidance and attend classes regularly.

We have art tutors specializing in drawing, acrylic, oil and watercolour, who can provide expert guidance in perspective drawing, architecture drawing, still life, portrait, landscape, botanical, and range of other subjects. Through our exceptional team, we offer personalized study plans, and many of our of alumni students choose to master a particular medium/s, develop a genre or wish to try something new. In addition, our tutors all have regular time slots at the Centre, and students have the option to attend different tutor’s classes or the same tutor regularly.

How to Top Up 
You can visit your online account and click 'reorder' for the same package or choose another course from our website. Whatever you choose, your credit will automatically sync into your online account, which allows you to book your art lessons to continue your study plan with us.

How Do the Art Lessons Work?

How do on-site lessons work?

  • Each course follows a step-by-step structure to cover the necessary concepts and techniques according to your chosen package
  • For each lesson, your workspace will be set-up for your arrival, and the tutor will have your specific subject prepared for the lesson
  • You will receive group or individual demonstrations plus one-to-one expert guidance during the lessons. At the end of each class, your progress is recorded.

How do the live online art lessons work?

  • The live online art lessons follow the same step-by-step structure as the on-site classes. You can attend the lesson on your phone, tablet or desktop. All you need will be the link, meeting ID and password you will receive in your booking confirmation.
  • We teach the fundamental principles and techniques using real objects you find in your house or guidance material that the tutors will give you.
  • For personal demos and guidance, the lesson will be divided into two virtual rooms so that you can have individual tuition during a demo without disturbing the other practising students
  • We recommend using your mobile with a flexible arm so that you can point the camera directly at your canvas/sketchbook while practising. An adjustable arm will allow you to turn the camera and screen so that you can see the tutors’ demo when they need to show you how a technique is executed. Our art materials packs include a flexible phone arm for you.
