Art classes in Oxford

Fun and relaxing art classes

I really believe that we can all benefit from having more creativity in our lives – and I would love to inspire and support you to do this!  Spending time being creative is great for your general wellbeing, creative thinking, and switching off from that never ending to-do list.  But mostly it is just a lot of fun.  Why not come and experience one of my art classes in Oxford, to help you to discover the joy of making art.

Not your typical art classes – my classes have a fun and relaxing approach.  They are all about being curious, exploring what art materials can do, experimenting, and having a play.

My art classes are for you if you….

  • Are a complete beginner and haven’t picked up a paintbrush or pencil since school (but can remember a point when you used to love making art)
  • Would love to have a go at being creative but don’t know where to start
  • Would like to try a really different and free way of making art
  • Would like to have some creative fun for a few hours!

The way I teach art is very similar to mindfulness – helping you to really be in the moment while making art. You can work as big as you like, as bold as you like, and make as much mess as you like – there is no right or wrong.  Making art in this way is great for your general wellbeing, for relaxing and for escaping from all the things that need doing for a few hours.

I am also a qualified life coach and I use these skills as well as my own experience as an artist to help bring out your creative expression and to see what you are capable of producing.

How you will feel after one of my classes

You will come away from my art classes with the confidence to show your work to others, put your work up on the wall, and to continue to make art at home – as well as wanting to make more art!  I always ask people at the end of my art classes to sum up in one word how they feel after the class, and the most frequent responses are – energised, relaxed, inspired and liberated!

Where are the art classes in Oxford held?

All of the classes (unless otherwise noted) are held in my cozy home studio in Headington.  I’ve tried to recreate that lovely feel of the art studio at school (although without the rules or the boring tidying up afterwards), with lots of colourful artwork on the walls as inspiration, and tables you don’t have to worry about keeping clean. There is always music playing, plenty of tea, coffee and chocolate biscuits, and a lovely garden view.

What are the art class options?

What people have to say about my art classes…..

“This was no ordinary painting class – it was an experience! Jane created an atmosphere that allowed everyone to relax and be open to creating. It reminded me how important it is to make time to be creative, have fun and play! After the class I felt invigorated and excited. The class gave me the encouragement I needed to get back into creating art and not worry about the end result. Thank you so much Jane for this incredible experience. I can’t think of a nicer way to have spent a Saturday morning 🙂 ” Serena Sharma
