Established in 1997 Richard and Diana have over 33 years teaching experience to share with you.
Every lesson is taught with step by step instructions, with every step demonstrated. Both of us circulate the class constantly to ensure everyone is able to do the step correctly, and if not we work with you on a one to one basis until you do. We have taught over 14,000 with 97% of students starting off with stick figures.
You only have to look at the samples from our students to see that we can also teach you!
Bookings are essential - Spaces are limited to 12 students per class - Classes are ongoing but must be booked for a full term at a time.
Classes are fun and informal with lots of support from both Richard & Diana and also from the other students in the class.
New students need to allow an extra $60 for drawing art materials. Depending how long you continue coming to the art lessons you will at some stage need to buy Charcoal, Caran D'Ache Neopastels & Prismacolour Premier Thick Core Coloured Pencils. You will be sent a list of colours depending on what we are doing each term.
To ensure we can keep the class numbers to a minimum, so you get quality teaching with lots of one to one attention, there are no allowances, refunds or transfer of classes for any days you can't make it to art class. Your fees pay for your space. It is up to the individual student to attend each class at the registered time and day for that term.
We are so positive and confident you will enjoy our lessons that we offer a 100% money back guarantee.
No natural talent required!
