Adult Art Classes

Who am I?

My name is Jacqui (Jax) Simpson. I am an Artist and teacher and have taught many students over 30 years.
I am passionate about Art and about those who want to learn how to create art.

I work in all mediums except Oil paint  (I have an aversion to the toxins in the process of oil painting – sad, but true. My husband is busy experimenting in Water-Soluble Oil paint, so hopefully that will change soon)

I teach all other mediums including:

  • Acrylic Paint
  • Watercolor Paint/pencils
  • Graphite
  • Charcoal
  • Pastels (oil and dry) and Pastel pencils
  • Ink
I do printing (all kinds) and we have a beautiful etching press in our studio.


 A Place to Meet

Most Artists (beginner and professional) could do with a little encouragement, inspiration, motivation, and guidance.

Sometimes, just a place to work! A place to meet other artists, do a workshop or an art session with a professional to guide you.

The Painting Cave Art studio has easels, tables, great coffee, and good music and is available to artists who wish to use it as a place to work when we are open, at a nominal fee.  (please inquire as this will depend on time, space and requirements that you may need)

Give me a call and I will give you details.

A Place to Learn

Artists of all levels may book an individual session (2 hours) with me for one-on-one tutoring at R 500 per session. (I do offer a 6 pm – 8pm session for those who cannot attend during the day. Unfortunately, I cannot do these sessions on a Saturday. I will guide you in your respected medium or request that you have for a single or succession of classes to complete a specific project with my guidance. 

Your class will be planned specifically around you and your needs. I will give you assignments to continue within your own time at home. When you are ready, you may request an additional class. If you are a beginner and you are not sure of your needs, I will put a program together for you that will have you up and running in no time at all. 

We also have a nicely stocked little store that caters for most of our workshops and art mediums.

Payment is required to secure your seat. Please give me a call or drop me a message below and we can arrange a date and time for your session.
