Daytime

London Art Classes are held in famous artist Nick Malone's working studio - a truly creative space in which to realise your artistic potential!

Beginners to drawing and painting are particularly welcome - the classes are small with lots of personal attention and a great atmosphere. We offer a very relaxed, student led class where everyone is free to work at their own pace. We find it best to get stuck in straight away, so this class is less theory, and more practical!

There are three elements to each class:

One: Practical studio work

The most important element in your time at the studio is personal practice.

Two: Instruction in the basic techniques of drawing and painting

There is instruction in one of the issues of drawing and painting each week. Topics covered include: Techniques, Line, Space, Light and Dark, Colour Mixing, Shape and Form, Composition, Subject and Meaning, and Marks, Movement and Texture.

Three: A slide show or short film on contemporary art

This part of the class links into the technique that we cover in the second element. We look at different artists’ approaches to help provide context and inspiration. This also helps you to place yourself within the world of contemporary art and develop your own style of working.

Nick is passionate about promoting good art practice, which he sees as a vital part of his role as a professional artist. He established London Art Classes in 2005 and has 15 years of extensive experience in developing creativity in beginners and more experienced artists.

If you’ve every secretly wished you’d become an artist, or just developed your artistic talent, this is the class for you!

What’s included?

Use of all materials and equipment needed for the class. We work on paper in the class and use acrylic paints because it has a faster drying time which allows students to take their work home. A range of drawing materials is also available.

A fantastic lunch of fresh baguette, brie, camembert, grapes and wine. If you have any dietary requirements please let us know when you book, as we’re happy to provide an alternative.

It was a real experience and pleasure to paint in an authentic artist's studio. Nick is a lovely guy and extremely knowledgeable on art. He was very open to any questions on art and painting and didn't make you feel silly for asking! Furthermore, he is an expert on colour mixing and we ended up learning so much. The free lunch was a lovely touch, with fresh baguettes and cheese. If you're looking for some true guidance on painting and want to learn more about art in general, this is the place to go!

I came to Nicks class without picking up a paint brush since I was a child, 7 weeks on and the progress I have made is more than I could have ever imagined. Its an absolute pleasure attending the Saturday class, I learn more each week, meet new people and get all the help and experience from Nick Malone. Fantastic Art Class. Highly recommended.

This Art Class is an excellent all round experience, where Nick enhances the painting sessions/lessons with an optional set of techniques to explore for the day, book references for inspiration, short videos about artists who deployed the presented techniques, his own extensive experience and expertise and an unlimited amount of material to use.

We were a little disappointed. Nick Malone was a nice man and clearly very clever but we felt at the end of the session we hadn't learnt very much ie how to improve our technique.Also we had no choice as to the medium.to be used. This might have been practical ie paintings would dry to take home by using acrylic.Lunch was very pleasant but it was not made clear that lunch would be provided so we had bought food.Overall probably felt the course was overpriced for the content. To summarise Nick should probably have asked us at the beginning what we wanted to do and also given a choice of medium if possible and maybe demonstrated some techniques. We did a sketching course previously which was brilliant.
