Term Time Classes

After School & Saturday Classes for Ages 5+. Each term covers a new, exciting theme where students have the chance to explore an array of techniques & mediums across the classes.


Holiday Workshops

Every half term & school holiday for ages 5+. Each workshop covers a different project, with a new skill or material to master. Students can attend individual classes or full days/ weeks.

I have been attending Janet’s Adult Class for few months now and have already seen a real improvement in my techniques. I have always loved drawing and painting, but finding the time to do so at home is a challenge. Going to the Art class has become my ‘‘me time’.
You don’t need to know how to draw, Janet is a patient and kind teacher who guides you step by step, adapting to your pace and abilities. I have enjoyed experimenting with different mediums (dry pastels, watercolours, acrylics, ink…) and discovering my strengths and areas for improvement.
Highly recommend, regardless of your background in drawing/ painting. Janet is a lovely teacher.
