Welcome To Our Atelier
The Classical Art Academy is a school of representational art. We work in small groups, to offer highly tutored classes in drawing and oil painting. Atelier is a French word meaning studio and has been adopted by certain art schools to reflect the old master's tradition of teaching aspiring artists' within their studio. Our Atelier opened in 2010, specialising in charcoal drawing and oil painting techniques used by great historical artists. Our students learn how to create beautiful portraiture, still life, landscapes, seascapes and en plein air from professional artists and highly acclaimed tutors. Experience has proven to us that anyone with a desire and determination to learn can become an accomplished artist with the right tuition. Our aim is to give you the techniques to express your creativity as fully as possible.
