“Dubravka, who runs the classes, is a major inspiration. She encourages everyone to be the best they can. Regular exhibitions of our work at the end of each term, while scary at first, are a brilliant way of motivating us. And lovely people populate the classes!” – Gillian Y.
London Art Classes is based in an old Victorian propeller factory in Deptford, South London. This is a great environment in which to develop your drawing and painting a working artist’s studio with all the art materials you could need while you are there, the studio is yours. Whether you are a complete beginner or working on your portfolio for art college, developing your art in an active professional studio makes a world of difference.
They take part in a yearly open studio event, along with 100 other artists, in the building, as part of The Deptford X Festival.

“Great teacher for a really interesting course. It may all be via Zoom just now, but Stephen is very much a hands-on teacher. It is fascinating to see how his carefully-measured observations, comments, suggestions and hints enable his pupils to improve their work immeasurably while retaining their own character. I thoroughly enjoyed my course and will definitely be back for more.” – Jeremy L.

“We hosted a private Brush and Bubbles event at work last year and it was brilliant! they brought all the equipment we would need and did such a great job of guiding us through painting the scene step by step. Several people had no painting experience at all and so this was such a great way to get creative without the pressure and we were all so proud of our results. I would definitely recommend anyone to do a Brush and Bubbles event, it’s so good for inspiring creativity and mindfulness!” – Isobel
