Welcome to my art classes where you’ll find creativity, self expression and inspiration.
Small class sizes allow for the best possible experience for each student.
Absolutely all levels are welcome from complete beginners to those with some experience.
“Allow yourself to be a beginner. No one starts off being excellent”
Here within the enjoyable and supportive atmosphere of the class you’ll find an opportunity to discover your own expressive style whatever your ability. You’ll be amazed by what you can achieve!
An exciting range of projects to inspire students to explore different media and ideas. Through the themes of still life, landscape, buildings, interiors, life drawing and portraiture, students will explore composition, colour, tone, perspective and proportions. This course is suitable for beginners as well as those with some experience.
As humans it is only natural that depicting our form should play and important role as subject matter. Built into this is the instinctive emotional response we experience when studying another person and many artists use this response in a dramatic, personal way to develop their own personal language. All welcome!

I love Claudia's classes. The warmth of her welcome is matched by the sensitivity and commitment of her teaching. She is full of knowledge about painters and painting but she also has the knack of fostering individual talent by close observation of her students' work and a quick understanding of what each person is trying to achieve.
Claudia is a committed teacher (while still being a working artist) and works with all those who take her classes to help them achieve their potential. She is always encouraging and always good humoured.
We have both been members of Claudia's Art classes for many years and have really enjoyed and benefitted from her skilled and expert teaching which seeks to bring out your own potential and develop your own style in a very supportive and enjoyable way. Unmissable!
Claudia's teaching style is professional , gentle and skilful whilst she is sensitive enough to allow individuality of techniques and approach…I cannot recommend these classes enough.
Claudia has a gift for seeing your good points and gently showing you where you can improve. She imposes no particular style and encourages you to flourish in your own way. She is very good at pointing out different ways of looking at the subject and dispelling any timidity that you may have.
Firstly, thank you so much for your lovely support and encouragement on Saturday. I learned loads but, just as important, I really enjoyed it. You manage to create a fun relaxed atmosphere which is still challenging. Thank you.
You have a superb ability to bring out the best in everyone’s art work and to encourage the individuality of different approaches. I think you are one of the best teachers I’ve ever come across.
