About Our Art Courses

The Sunny Art Centre is a leading art institution located in central London, dedicated to sharing knowledge and enthusiasm for traditional fine art practices. Our tutors are highly qualified practising art professionals and our centre has been hosting courses and art events for over a decade. Our comprehensive experience extends to working with corporations such as Selfridges & Co, Harrods, Giorgio Armani, Freshfields, HSBC Bank, Royal Academy of Art, PricewaterhouseCoopers (P W C), ITV, SKY TV, BBC Worldwide and the National Gallery,  etc.  We offer corporate art services, lectures, participate in art fairs, as well as organise in-house exhibitions.

Our art classes are held at our gallery in central London and focus on painting and drawing techniques, as well as art portfolio building tuition.  They are designed for anyone who is keen to develop and improve their visual art abilities, and for students who are interested in preparing a body of work for degree applications. We additionally offer Chinese painting and calligraphy courses.

Our drawing and painting classes provide a direction in the use of materials, offering guidance in selecting the subject matter, as well as supporting students with formal issues ranging from line, tone, colour and proportion to scale and composition.

Designed for all ages and skill levels, our classes aid students in developing confidence in the following media: Oil and acrylic paint, watercolour and inks, oil and chalk pastels, charcoal and graphite.

We also provide information on painting and drawing genres ranging from portraiture, still life, old master techniques, figure drawing and painting, Chinese calligraphy and painting. On completion of our courses, students will have acquired a diverse skill-base and a thorough understanding of techniques, in addition to learning how to instigate and develop creative ideas.

Our beginner's art courses aim to offer a step-by-step structure for understanding visual art principles. Our teachers provide tailored advice for each student using varied approaches, nurturing each individual’s perspectives, opinions, and personal goals.

Sunny Art Centre is for artists of all levels and aims to help those who wish to expand their art abilities regardless of their artistic background, ultimately establishing a unique artistic sensibility. We familiarise ourselves with our students' ambitions and customise classes to suit their objectives, whilst providing them with an inspirational environment, and encouragement to develop creativity.
