Classical Art Academy run Drawing and Oil Painting Classes Courses Workshops and Painting Holidays from their studio in Bournemouth, Dorset.  Art courses, classes and workshops in Drawing and Oil Painting for all ability levels and ages.

Open Days

Atelier Programme • Art School • Drawing & Oil Painting • Portraiture & Figurative • Holidays

Our Atelier programme is split into three stages.  Beginner, Intermediate and Further Studies.  The beginner and intermediate stages each have four modules.  When these two stages have been completed you will be able to progress onto further more complex studies.  Each stage will build your artistic abilities giving you the skills you need to draw and paint to a high standard.

The beginner stage is designed to take you from a novice with no experience to a competent amateur and to prepare you for the intermediate stage ahead.  

We see the Atelier programme as a great pathway for learning how to become a competent artist.  An historic proven method of learning from the Renaissance, as effective today as it was back then in the 16th century.  Each step of the way you will be supported and tutored by a skilled artist, incorporating live demonstrations and a high degree of one on one tuition.
