Have you been thinking about getting art lessons, but somehow kept putting it off?

Have you always wanted to paint or draw? But feel 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?


Ralph Waldo Emerson. “Every artist was first an amateur”


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!


Henri Matisse. “Creativity takes courage”


Look, 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.


Thomas Merton. “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”


Be like a zen monk and just zone in. 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.)

In fact, did you know that you don’t need to paint with smelly solvents? There’s a lot of misinformation out there.

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.

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.

Classes are held at:

22 Vineyard Road, Bergvliet, 7945, Cape Town, South Africa.

Any questions?

Fill them in below. Classes are small, so don’t dilly-daddle. And if you want to bring your granny, or your cousin Lionel, you’ll need an extra lack of hesitation. And if you can’t make the set times, let me know and I’ll see what I can do.

See you soon!
