We offer classes for kids and beginners, and ongoing progressive classes for advanced practitioners. Our classes are small and fees usually include all materials. We have a maximum student limit for each course, giving you the best tutor/student ratio possible.

We are located in the atmospheric, grade II listed, historic Inverlochy House in the Te Aro district of Wellington.

Please feel free to invite friends to enrol for a course; any social media exposure and sharing course details would be much appreciated and will help Inverlochy run more courses in the future.

Intensive Drawing (from charcoal to oil paint) - Summer School

Drawing is ultimately about invention. Though we initially draw what we see, supported by knowledge and experience, it is the way we tell the story that is expression. The battle to find the drawing and engage the attendant inspiration, that essential struggle played out on paper or canvas contributes to the stirring nature of the work. The aim therefore, is to balance the expressive response with the growing understanding of structure.

This 2 week drawing intensive will introduce diverse strategies to free up the hand, working from short duration exercises to more sustained drawings using classical form lighting. The last week will culminate with an introduction to oil ‘wipe outs’ (effectively drawing with oil paint). Instruction will include an introduction to basic oil painting procedure.

The class will be taught by two instructors, ensuring individual guidance. Although the course is designed for students and artists with some figure drawing experience, committed beginners will be welcomed, supported and come away with confidence in a process all artists should learn.

All basic materials supplied.

This class is unusual in that it intended to run with up to 15 students, but with 2 tutors, making for a dynamic and exciting atmosphere.

N.B. A model will also available for  a significant amount of the teaching time (most of the work will be from a live model)
