At The Painting  Cave we offer classes to students from age 6 years (Grade 1) to age 100. Since we are a teaching studio, beginners of all ages are welcome. Please scroll down to see the classes that we offer.

Adult Art Classes

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.

I have been creating and teaching Art for 30 years and I work in all mediums (except Oil paint as I have an aversion to the toxins in the process of oil painting) 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.
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)

Artists of all levels may book an individual session (2 hours) with me for one on one tutoring at R 400 per session; should you require a single or succession of classes to complete a specific project with my guidance. 

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 an email and I will arrange a date and time with you.

 

KidsArt

Too often children and parents mistake Craft for Art. Since our focus is on Fine Art, children get to work with all kinds of different Fine Art mediums. Graphite, charcoal, pastels, paint, printing etc. Our focus is on instilling pride and purpose in the work that we do. Learning the correct way to apply mediums, how to COMPLETE a project, how to take care of mediums, and dexterity.

Workshops

A Saturday morning with a bunch of friends, learning a new skill and just having fun. This is what our workshops are about. If you sign up  3 or more people for a workshop, we can set a date for you immediately. Alternatively, we can put you on a list and create a workshop when others sign up and then offer the date to you.
