Art Classes

Art classes in Johannesburg for ages 6 – 86

Weekly Adult Art Classes (Ages 19 – 80). Classes are structured so that each student can learn and explore in their own way. One student might be working on a charcoal project, while the other is busy with an oil painting. We can teach most mediums and will be able to assist you at your level, whether its highly skilled or beginner. Morning classes, as well as evening classes, are available.

Weekly Teenage Art Classes (Ages 13 – 18). These classes offer students the opportunity to work on projects intensively. We ensure that students have a practical understanding of all the essential art terminology and concepts. We ensure students have an extensive portfolio in Gr 12, should they wish to pursue a creative visual degree such as Animation, Graphic Design, Fine Arts, or Illustration.

Most of us start drawing at age of 3. Some of us wish to never stop. Children’s art doesn’t just have to be a hobby. You can encourage your children to develop their drawing and art skills, which will help develop their creativity, imagination social skills and confidence. Drawing can help children express themselves, become more organised, communicate better and develop their fine motor skills.

The Art Mediums We Teach


Artists’ Charcoal is a form of dry art medium made of finely ground organic materials that are held together by a gum or wax binder.  Charcoal can produce lines that are very light or intensely black while being easily removable, yet vulnerable to leaving stains on paper. The dry medium can be applied to almost any surface from smooth to very coarse. Fixatives are often used with charcoal drawings to solidify the position to prevent erasing or rubbing off of charcoal dust.

Oil Painting

Oil painting is the process of painting with pigments with a medium of drying oil as the binder.

Oil painting is the medium of the Masters. From Rembrandt to van Gogh. This versatile medium can seem daunting and overwhelming at times. Whether you are a beginner that feels clueless on where to start, or a nifty painter already, you are bound to fall in love with oils.

Air drying clay is a popular and relatively inexpensive choice for art projects big and small. It can be a great way for a budding artist or craftsperson to practice their skills, and even experienced artists often enjoy the simplicity of air drying clay. Air drying clay can be used for jewellery, ornaments, and different projects. Best of all, air drying clay doesn’t require an oven or kiln to create a beautiful, unique product.

Watercolour, also known as aquarelle (French loanword), is a painting method in which the paints are made of pigments suspended in a water-based solution. Watercolours are usually translucent and appear luminous because the pigments are laid down in a pure form with few fillers obscuring the pigment colours.

It is a beautiful medium with stunning translucent effects that no other medium can achieve.

The role of drawing in education remains critical, and not just to the creative disciplines in art and design for which it is foundational. As a primary visual language, essential for communication and expression, drawing is as important as the development of written and verbal skills.

Acrylic paint is a fast-drying paint made of pigment suspended in acrylic polymer emulsion. Acrylic paints are water-soluble, but become water-resistant when dry. Depending on how much the paint is diluted with water, or modified with acrylic gels, media, or pastes, the finished acrylic painting can resemble a watercolor or an oil painting, or have its own unique characteristics not attainable with other media.
