Discoveries Art School
Can't draw to save your life?
I bet YOU CAN!
Art Lessons for Grown-ups
Discoveries Art Classes:
For everyone to get the most out of our Art Lessons, classes are 'sorted' into 2 'groups' - all with a max of 6 students per class:
First Steps: for newbies to art. (Or if you are after a refresher of the basics.)
101 classes introduce students to painting & drawing skills with a programme that builds upon itself to reinforce the basics - and the reality that painting and drawing can be learned skills.
102 classes builds on the basics taught in Term 1 beginning with learning about composition and how to tackle various subjects such as still life, furry friends and landscapes. Great stuff!
Different Strokes: classes are for people looking for support & encouragement with their own art - with a wee 'Sneak Peek' to extend their Arty education each week to keep things fresh and interesting.
Classes at Discoveries are bursting with positiveness and supported by a group safety net to enable all members to occasionally jump knowing all will be well.

My favourite Students:
Ok, so as a Teacher, it is simply wrong to admit to having favourite students - but I must confess... some of the
'most wonderful' experiences I have had as a teacher have been working with the student who claims 'I can't draw to save my life' - or 'I can't draw a stick figure'.
It might just be the 'know-it-all' in me, but I simply love proving them wrong!
I firmly believe no-one is born an Artist. Those who have attained that title have done so out of shear determination & hard work - and a willingness to both play and to be vulnerable.
Everyone can learn to paint & draw and although the odd person has pushed the boundaries of my belief - ultimately -
I've not been proven wrong, yet :-)
My Teaching Philosophy...
To support, inspire, motivate & gently challenge each student to achieve all they wish in their Art.
All this while working in a 'zero-pressure', relaxed & fun environment...
because we learn best when we are enjoying what we do :-)
