Art Classes

Welcome to the options for painting classes which are held in my active Upton studio in a relaxed fun, all smiles environment. There is a great library of books for reference and inspiration too.

If you join a Sunday all day classes, we pop down to the local White Horse pub for an hour lunch break (pre-order Roasts usually). It is a great way to divide the lesson in to two parts.
Classes are small maximum 5-6 people.
