Welcome to Inverlochy Art School

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

We offer classes for beginners, and ongoing progressive classes for advanced practitioners in drawing, painting, printmaking, illustration and silk screening. Our classes are small and most fees include all materials (check individual classes for details). We have a maximum student limit for each course, giving you the best tutor/student ratio possible.

We also run open studios for groups of artists who wish to meet regularly, or you can use our specialist print studio if you have printmaking experience. Please enquire for further details. 

At present we have paused our popular kids classes, but these will resume soon.

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 (Friday daytime 10am - 1pm) T3A.20

Please note: Check the enrollment details carefully this is now a four week class.

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.

BYO Materials please

A model will be available for some of the classes.
