Coronavirus covid-19

UPDATE 26/05/2020: Classes and workshops are returning! We will be running limited classes and workshop for small groups and complying with all social distancing and safety measures. We look forward to painting with you all again!

With the spread of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) well covered in the media and the government starting to take drastic action to slow down the spread of the virus, we all need to consider our actions to help protect those at high risk and help limit exhaustion on our medical system.

As of the 30th of March 2020 we will no longer be holding our face-to-face art workshops. All classes are postponed until further notice. Online courses continue to run and new online and live streaming classes will be added soon. Our online art supplies store is still open to orders.

As a small business we appreciate your continued support as we all navigate this unprecedented situation as it evolves. We are monitoring updates given and will make any necessary changes to ensure you are all safe and will notify you of any such changes when they are made.

We have decided to set up a facebook group so that students and other artists can support each other through this time and we can share challenges, activities, tips and keep in touch and inspired.

Up to the 30th of March 2020 our classes will continue to run, however we have limited our class sizes to a very small number of participants to minimise risk and ensuring that our students are very well spaced out and appropriate hygiene measures are in place.

We ask that anyone with symptoms alerts us and does not come to the class. We allow transferring to a future class date, so rest assured you will not lose out.

If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us at

Art is great to release some of the stress from all of the constant media bombardment with some enjoyable painting! Learn new techniques that you can practice with at home if you have to self quarantine!

We have extra hygiene methods in place and:

  • We have a large classroom and students are well spaced out,
  • We keep a class sizes very small,
  • We have hand sanitiser and soap readily available,
  • We ask for no touching/shaking hands/hugging at this time,
  • We offer contactless payment options for any purchases,
  • We have easy access to fresh outdoor air and
  • If any students have symptoms we request them not to come to class.

We must all do our part to minimise the spread to protect those at high risk and minimise the overwhelm of the medical system and we appreciate your understanding and assistance with ensuring we can protect the safety of all our customers and staff.

Please rest assured we are taking every measure possible to make sure our staff and customers are safe.
