Weekly Classes

Face to Face Classes in Brisbane-

Our ongoing weekly morning classes with De Gillett run Wednesdays & Thursdays, 9:30am to 12:00 noon (2.5 hours), and Thursday night 6:30 to 8:30pm (2 hours).

Our ongoing weekly morning classes with Julie Martin are on Fridays, 9:30 to 11:30am (2 hours). Julie’s classes are very suitable for absolute beginners, and artists who are inexperienced with acrylic paints.

Bring along a canvas, your acrylic paints, brushes and palette knives, and most importantly, some printed out images that you find inspirational. Your tutor can’t help you get there if where you are headed is visible only inside your head! Detailed information on what to bring is available and downloadable from the “Materials and Freebies” page.

Our Life Drawing sessions run on Wednesday evenings, 6:30 – 8:30 pm.   Wednesdays are open drawing sessions where a life (nude) model poses for us in stances ranging from 30 seconds to 20 minutes.

Arts Tree painting classes are structured in blocks of 4 x 2 or 2.5 hour classes at the same time each week for 4 weeks in a row. If you like what you find, then as an existing client you have first option of purchasing the next 4 weeks of classes at the same time and place. Should you be unable to make it to class one week, we are very happy to make up that one week, and to bump that payment on to the next available date at the end of your booked dates. Our students are very varied- we have some who find that they love our classes so much they just keep on coming week after week, and some who can only find the time in their busy lives for just one four week block, and everything in between! We maintain a waiting list for places in our classes, so if as an ongoing student you decide to give it a miss for now or for forever, your place goes to the next student artist waiting on the list. You can join a class at any time (depending on the availability of places) – new students can begin a 4 week block whenever they are ready- there is no particular start date for any block, as tutoring is completely individualised for each student. If the class is full you can contact us to register for the waiting list for that class and we will contact you as soon as a place is available.

Weekly classes Online

We aim to also develop a weekly online class in the future, where students will have access to see face-to-face trouble-shooting processes with students and tutor De Gillett as they progress with their individual projects. Thank you for your patience while we develop this platform!
