Central Coast Art Classes

Alternatively Naomi tutors group art classes at the Kariong Art Barn and the Ettalong Beach Arts and Craft Centre.

Your classes are tailored to you and what you want to be able to achieve.

So if there is something in particular that you would like to improve, your lessons can focus on that.

You can work on enlargement techniques, colour mixing, making your paintings or drawings more realistic, or loose,  brush strokes, how to use a certain medium or a bit of everything.

Group art classes for teenagers and adults, held at the Kariong Art Barn. Led by local artist Naomi Veitch, provide a dynamic environment for students to explore and refine their drawing and painting skills across various mediums.

The drawing classes cover a range of subjects such as enlargement and copying techniques, working from life, smooth rendering, different shading techniques and  more. You will be introduced to various mediums such as pen, graphite, charcoal and more. You will work on your own personal projects in this class too with guidance and feedback from the instructor.

Catering to individuals at every skill level, from beginners eager to delve into the world of art to intermediate students seeking to enhance their techniques, the classes foster growth and creativity in a supportive atmosphere.

To maintain an optimal learning environment, class sizes are limited to a maximum of 10 students, ensuring each participant receives personalized attention and guidance. Students must be 12+ years old to enroll in the teen classes and 18+ to enrol in the adult classes.

Contact Naomi to reserve your spot in a class for Term 3

If anyone had asked me if I could paint or draw, I would have given them a firm "no".  However, I've just completed my first ever term of painting and drawing classes with Naomi and I can confidently say that anyone can paint or draw!
Naomi taught us so much about the different types of media and techniques that I have now discovered a new love of both painting and drawing.
