Get away, have fun and enter the wonderful world of art at Storms River Village.

Artists represented by Bitou Art Gallery offer comprehensive art courses that equip you with the essential knowledge and hands-on experience to set you on your way in the wonderful world of art or to expand your existing skillset.

Courses include painting in watercolours or acrylics for beginners, and drawing (figure drawing optional). Colour theory is included. Mentor workshops are also offered.

The courses address everything - from setting up your workstation or studio and the hands-on aspects of painting and drawing to marketing and sharing your work with friends, family and the public at large. You learn about perspective, composition, colour-mixing, painting and life-drawing techniques. All you need to know, and then a bit more!

We offer...

A stimulating, creative environment in a professional studio.

Individual attention (maximum of 6 per class).

All teas and lunches.

Course manual (handy reference for back home).

The necessary equipment and certain art materials.

Professional mounting of your completed artworks on paper.

Post-course support… a little hand-holding!

Weekly classes can also be arranged to suit the personal requirements of locals. Individually crafted accommodation packages are available.
