online painting courses for adults

Online Art Course – Structure & Content

Primarily Nina’s online painting classes for adults are practical, informative and are tailored to meet individual goals and abilities. No projects are repeated so students can attend each term knowing there will always be fresh ideas and inspiration.
Course classes are delivered online via Zoom. Courses run for 4 – 6 weeks throughout the year from September to June. A single class can be booked if availability permits.

Mixed Level Courses

This course is tailored to meet individual goals and abilities. Students may opt to follow Nina through a demonstration, working a piece from start to finish.

Students can work in their preferred medium or diversify each week as they choose, using whatever materials are available to them. Nina will cover different styles and disciplines weekly – oils, acrylics, watercolours, pastels, charcoal, pen, ink and pencils, to allow students find & develop their own way of working. More experienced students may wish, and will be encouraged to explore their personal expression, through their own choice of work, where Nina will guide and advise. Colour mixing, composition, drawing and painting techniques are covered as the class progresses.

How to Prepare for Online Classes

Prior to class, ideas are sent to students to view for their upcoming class. Nina suggests images and materials that she will be working with. A post class video enables students to look back over the class as many times as they wish. Repeating the session if desired before the following weeks class. A themed plan for homework is provided for students who wish to continue to do more drawing &  painting during the week. A private class WhatsApp group, enables class interaction, providing students with a platform to connect and share ideas, getting to know each other. Nina views and monitors each students work individually each week, giving personal guidance, tips and feedback.

What People Say

“I have thoroughly enjoyed attending Nina’s Art classes over the past few years. I was a complete beginner but I am now confident to work on pieces on my own. Nina is an excellent teacher who is always well prepared for class and takes time to help and guide each student with their work. The weekly art class is much appreciated and is a welcome escape from this crazy world right now"

"I thoroughly enjoyed Nina’s art classes, both in person pre pandemic and on Zoom during it ! Her classes are very relaxed and we are encouraged to try different media and explore options at our own pace. Having said that we are presented with challenges and are very much supported during the process of tackling them ! A really positive experience."
