Tuesday Evening Absolute Beginners Class

6.30pm - 8.30 pm

There are two spaces available in the Tuesday evening class for anyone looking for a fully tutored, small and friendly art class in the St Leonards area of East Kilbride. The class is suitable for complete beginners and the very nervous who would like to improve their art skills in a small group.


Course Content

Introduction to drawing skills, 'ways of seeing' and using pencil, pen  charcoal and pastels.


Introduction to painting using acrylics, watercolours and oils.


Colour mixing, painting from life and from resources, sizing up and preparing canvasses.


Introduction to landscape,portraits and still life and the interesting tricks of the trade in each genre.

Introduction to tea, coffee, assorted biscuits and cakes.



The cost of each session is £20 / per person for 2 hours tuition and includes all materials

and a cuppa and cake.

Bookings are made in four week blocks and  everyone is invoiced individually, in advance, by e-mail. The total cost of each block is £80 and the fee is non-refundable unless the class doesn't run. I'll let everyone know in advance when there is a break in the classes and they will usually be around the normal school holiday times and national holidays.

* Although brushes are provided at the classes each student is encouraged to buy their own as they go along so that they can use them exclusively and guarantee their good condition.

Important: Please note that the toilet facilities are upstairs in the house via several sets of steps/ stairs. Regrettably this means that the shed groups are not suitable for people with

serious mobility conditions.
