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.

If you’ve ever secretly wished you’d become an artist, or just developed your artistic talent, these are the classes for you!

Nick teaches a practical drawing and painting class on Saturdays throughout the year and a Wednesday evening life drawing class in the spring and summer months.

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.

As an artist Nick has exhibited extensively in London and internationally, including at the Royal Academy, Dulwich Picture Gallery, Art Bermondsey Project Space, The British Council Greece and the Carrousel du Louvre.

Before becoming an artist, Nick had an academic career, which included gaining a degree in Adult Learning.

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.

Had an absolutely brilliant time with Nick. Bought this as a birthday present for a friend and it was an incredible, relaxing and enriching experience! Nick gave lots of interesting, thought provoking context to the act of drawing as well as a structured, useful way to begin practicing. We were both complete beginners in drawing and had never done life drawing before- so we were a little nervous!- Nick put us completely at ease and we felt we improved massively during the session. Thank you Nick!

I learnt a lot in just 1 hour 30, and it felt like the right amount of content for this kind of class - really useful but not overwhelming. Accessible for everyone, many thanks Nick.

Nick is a great teacher. I took his course on keeping sketchbooks, and it exceeded my expectations. With his professional experience and background in academic teaching, he offers a wealth of knowledge. Nick goes deep into subjects like art practice, growing as a creative, as well as provides practical tips on keeping a sketchbook. Highly recommended!
