Have you always wanted to paint or draw, but somehow kept putting it off? Or been too afraid or hesitant to start? Or been beset with frustration at the beginning and then just given up?

Or you’ve been painting for a while and you’re fascinated by the Old Master’s like Rubens, Rembrandt or Renoir and want to know how they painted?

It ain’t no thing!

Art is not a competition. There’s always going to be someone better or more sucky than you. So why not just enjoy yourself and tap into your own endless source of inspiration?

You’ll probably find a surprising amount of creativity within yourself you never knew you had! The more you learn a new skill, as always, the more a whole new world opens up before you!

So don’t be chicken. You wanna paint in oils don’t you? Or be able to draw!

Look, I won’t lie. I don’t think any artist ever feels like they’re good enough. Unless you have a massive ego. But the most important thing about being an artist is, well, creating art.

Be like a zen monk and just zone into your own. It’s amazing what a pencil in your hand can do for your life. The simplest things in this world are often the most profound.

And don’t listen to those naysayers that say painting in oils is difficult. (In fact, I think it’s easier than acrylics in my humble opinion.)

So if you want to do art lessons in Cape Town and would like to pop in to do some art lessons, don’t hesitate to contact me or RSVP below.

Classes are for all skill types. It’s relaxing but structured. Bring a friend with to add to the social vibes. And kids over 10 are welcome.

Painting from life is one of the best ways to train as an artist.


What you’ll need to be an awesome artist

Every class I’ll give you a list of stuff to bring for the next one. Don’t worry, it won’t be a very long list. But for your first class, you’ll need simply:

  • A great attitude
  • Your brain. There’s going to be a lot to learn!

That’s it. I’ll provide you with paper and charcoal for us to get started.
