Hello and thank you for visiting “art CLASS”.
‘art CLASS London’ is a unique Art Studio based in North London. We run Adults Drawing and Painting 10 Weeks Courses, Watercolour Group and Lino Printing Workshops.
We also run Art Courses for children, teens and young adults aged from 7 to 18 years old.
“art CLASS” provides a thorough basis for understanding all drawing and painting elements and principles. Detailed information given on materials and techniques. Students can further develop methods of visual expression and are encouraged to develop a portfolio of work.
Following Joseph Beuys’ moto – “Every human being is an artist” – The ultimate aim of Art Class is to inspire students to realise their full creative potential and make them into artists. Many of our students have taken this path. Some went into a higher education and some now do their practice independently and successfully.
All materials included.
Each term is structured. Artists will be introduced to the theoretical and technical aspects of a specific theme.
To inspire you, we will at look at the work of modern and contemporary artists.
We start with the drawing skills: scale,proportion, measurement, perspective, tone,etc. We explore a variety of drawing media:pencils, graphite, charcoal, colour pencils, soft and oil pastels.
This is followed by exploration of a various painting techniques, using painting mediums such as: ink, gouache, acrylic and watercolours.
A stimulating range of subjects, materials and approaches will be utilised, including: still life and figure.
The choice of materials, techniques and subject matter are always align with the theme.
In a second half of the term, you will explore expressive possibilities across a range of media, including graphite, charcoal, pastels,ink, paint, collage, print, etc. which might be relevant to your theme.
You will be encouraged to turn your exploration into wonderful ideas and concepts towards the creation of outstanding works of art.

This group meets once a week for a 3 hours session.
A session starts with a one hour of collective discussion about each artists work, led by the tutor.
After initial assessment of what went before, we establish a course of action for each water colourist on that day. Then one tries to accomplish that goal.
This is no pressure group; everyone works at their own pace.
