My Art Classes are a great way to enjoy a break from routine.

Anyone can draw, with me as your guide. I focus on applying the fundamentals of art - developing the basics of shape, perspective, shading, composition, colour mixing, and application to create still life drawings. Working at your own pace, once this stage is mastered with confidence, you’ll progress to painting your very own still life masterpiece!


What students say...

“I started art classes with Violetta after seeing some of her works at a local market. She encouraged, advised and guided but most of all allowed me to develop my “eye”. I still have a way to go but the most valuable aspect of the class for me is the total immersion and peace I find when drawing and painting. Thank you Vi. :)”   Fiona R.


“I recently enrolled in Art Classes held with Violetta. I am thoroughly enjoying discovering 

how to draw using charcoals and looking forward to upcoming lessons using pastels. 

Violetta takes time to work with us, one on one, assisting us to develop our own ability.”  Cathy Munro
