Art Classes


Ever wanted to paint that beautiful landscape or flower or that portrait of a loved one, but weren't sure how? Then read on!

Danny and Val invite you to join our attractive and friendly studio in the heart of the Kent countryside.

If you live in the Maidstone or the Tonbridge and Malling areas of Kent, then this is the place for you to learn new skills, or improve on existing ones, in all aspects of painting and drawing in a relaxed and at times lively atmosphere!


Classes are held in drawing, watercolour, pastel, oils and acrylics, both for adults and for children, and are geared principally to the wishes of each individual student, from complete beginners to the more experienced. We can also cater for those who wish to explore the joys of linocut.

You go at your own pace! Classes are small, with no more than 4 to 7 students at any one time, thereby ensuring everyone receives individual tuition. We will guide you every step of the way in your preferred medium and subject matter!

Whilst we have a basic stock of the essentials for purchase to get you going - paper, pencils, canvas, brushes etc. given that everyone is working at their own pace on different projects, students bring in and use their own materials.

Classes are held on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and are of 2 hours duration. We are fairly flexible in that you can change your class day due to commitments you may have or holidays, provided we have the space. All we ask is that any cancellation requires a weeks notice otherwise you forfeit that class's payment. Enquire about classes here.

Many of our students have gone on to sell and exhibit their work through local exhibitons and galleries, whilst others have been inspired to embark on Fine Art Degree courses. See some of our students work here

Gift Vouchers

Vouchers for Art Classes are now available. You can purchase Gift Vouchers for 1, 2, 3 or 4 classes. Each class costs £25.

We can produce a special gift card made out to the person of your choice, for that special Birthday, Christmas or other occasion.

All you need to do is let us know who it's for and where to send it! When you receive the gift voucher, all that needs to be done then is to contact Val at the studio to arrange when the voucher will be redeemed. The voucher will be valid for 1 year from the date of purchase.

To purchase your voucher just click on one of the vouchers below. This will bring up a form in a new window for you to complete your details, the amount you wish to spend, and the your preferred payment method - either via cheque or with online or telephone banking via BACS/Faster Payments through direct bank transfer. If you choose to pay via BACS we will email our bank details to you separately on receipt of the voucher request. Please be aware that cheques will take longer to process and will need to clear in the bank before any voucher is sent.

There is space on the form for you to indicate any special requests or requirements. Alternatively, you can of course simply send an email to us outlining your wishes with any questions you may have here to discuss them, or you can telephone the studio directly on +44 (0)1622 816896. We look forward to hearing from you!
