We now offer a range of on-site and live online art masterclasses carefully designed and taught by our team of highly qualified practising professional artists. These art classes will acquaint our students with different possible approaches to the art of drawing and painting, while also providing them with essential artistic skills and techniques.
Each art masterclass provides you with the opportunity to explore a specific medium, genre or technique in a very in-depth fashion. By the end of each course, you will have acquired a solid understanding of various media and materials, which will allow you to progress and experiment further with your art practice.
Our courses are as art should be: open to everyone. We have different art short courses depending on the student's level and preferred medium. Refer to the suitability section of each art course for more details.
Want to draw like Michelangelo or paint like Caravaggio? Choose your favourite medium and embark on a unique creative journey. Explore the available masterclasses below.
All of our masterclasses can be learnt in our central London art studio at Sunny Art Centre or remotely online via our live online teaching platform. The live online art tuition will follow the same structure as our on-site sessions. You can, therefore, have live interactive art lessons with our expert art tutors remotely, wherever you are.
