Welcome to Inverlochy Art School

Inverlochy Art School, in central Wellington, offers a fabulous range of highest quality part time art classes taught by a friendly and welcoming community of enthusiastic and talented practicing artists. 

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. 


Drawing & Painting the Portrait with Denise Durkin (Daytime)

Learn the portrait in our eight part class. Starting with the proportions of the head, we will focus on structural masses, the importance of perspective and effects of lighting and colour, through to classic drawing and painting techniques, all to help create convincing three dimensionality and realism. There will also be insights into types of portraiture and the importance of expressive and individual approaches to portraits both drawn and painted.

All necessary materials provided.

A model will be available for some of the classes.
