Our beginner’s classes are suitable for children with an interest in all forms of art.

These classes provide the opportunity for students to discover their artistic talent, indulge in their passion for art and explore their creative side.

Students will be taught a variety of techniques, including painting & drawing – using various mediums, from pencil and pastels, to watercolours and mixed media.

At City Arts, we keep our classes small and this allows our students to receive 1:1 guidance and support – tailored to their needs and focused on their progress.
