Founded by painter and tutor Matthew Browne in 2013, the school offers a selection of part-time day, evening and short art courses for teenagers and adults wishing to develop their experience of drawing, painting and printmaking. Practical skills are taught and creative thinking is nurtured and encouraged within a structured framework that emphasises each individuals artistic development, without imposing any specific stylistic interpretation. 

In addition to our regular term-time schedules, our programmes also comprise more intensive year-long courses from stages 1-4, designed to accomodate a sequential pathway of study from beginning to more advanced levels.


Our courses provide a platform for those who wish to develop their passion into a career, to become exhibiting artists, or to prepare a submission portfolio for entrance into a full-time tertiary art institution. Whatever your creative goal, we look forward to working with you.


The emphasis is on providing quality, accessible, professionally delivered art courses and on providing plenty of constructive personal feedback and encouragement.
