At First Class Art you will discover your own hidden talent for creating beautiful drawings and paintings that will amaze your family and friends. I believe everyone has the ability inside them, they just don’t know how to access it – that’s where I come in.

I will give you the technical skills and the encouragement to nurture the first class artist lurking inside you.

The majority of my students come to me not having picked up a paintbrush before and believing they couldn’t draw. I quickly show them that isn’t true. With specific training to see the world in a slightly different way I can turn novice doodlers into high selling artists.

But if all you want is develop a relaxing and highly rewarding hobby then our small studio classes are perfect for you.

Studio Classes

Our friendly studio classes in a converted convent are the best way to develop your creative skills. All easels are kept a minimum of 2m apart and masks are worn at all times.

Plein Air Classes

Experience the freedom of painting outdoors at hundreds of venues along the Algarve coastline in a safe, uncrowded and stunningly beautiful environment.

Painting Holidays

Due to the Coronavirus, all our painting holidays are now sadly on hold.

Private Lessons

If you prefer not to be in a group environment during these times and you live on the Algarve, I can come to you. Private one-on-one lessons in the comfort of your own home are the perfect way to indulge your creativity.
