BEGINNERS DROP-IN DRAWING AND PAINTING ART COURSES LONDON

Our beginner’s art classes are held in our central London art studio. Students are taught the fundamental techniques of drawing and painting such as line, shading, colour mixing, composition and scale. They will achieve an understanding of form by first learning to draw different geometrical shapes and objects. They will then step into painting and will be taught colour mixing techniques, colour values, and painting application techniques. The media which students will be introduced to in our beginner's courses are graphite, charcoal, chalk pastel, oil pastel, oil paint, watercolour, and acrylic paint.

Class themes include life drawing, portraits, still life, landscapes, old masters, cast drawing and en 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.

Suitability

These classes are aimed towards those with an interest in creating art but have never taken art classes, or for those who have taken art classes in the past and wish to revisit their passion. These classes are also suitable for young people who are thinking of applying to art schools. If you wish to relax and have a bit of fun and learn about art or are looking to find a creative way to invigorate your life after work, this is the class for you.

What You Will Achieve Upon Completion of the Course

The step-by-step, progressive nature of our beginner's art classes will allow students to easily acquire and improve basic drawing and painting techniques. By the end of the course, students will have a solid comprehension of structure, different media, and approaches in the 2-dimensional format, and the motivation to develop their new skills.

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 need 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 the overall structure of what you should follow and achieve during your course to maximise your results.

We Help You To Learn About the Right Art Materials
During your introductory lesson, the tutor will go through what art materials you need for the art course and how to use them. We recommend buying your art supplies after your introductory lesson. This will avoid you the trouble of mistakenly purchasing the wrong art materials. If you don’t want to purchase your own, we also have our Art Material Packages, all individually designed and assembled for each of our art courses by our tutors which will save you time.

Different Art Tutors from the Best Art Academy
Our tutors designed and created each of our art courses. They are expert and refined art tutors with prodigious backgrounds from the best international academies and universities such as the Royal Academy of Art and Central Saint Martin’s 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 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 the 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 (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 that 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 will be back, 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.
