    Hi my mum is interested in taking up a beginners drawing class and i was wondering are you still doing courses at the moment? Tuesday or Weds evening classes would suit best…

    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

      Hi Niamh, We have a very good Drawing Class with Eimear on Tuesday evenings 7.00 – 9.00pm. This class only launched this year so there are a lot of beginners in it. Our teachers are all qualified and experienced Art Teachers so she will be in good hands whichever class she chooses. Give us a quick call on 01 4990614 to book a trial if you like. Paul

    Hi, just wondering if you have future dates set out for this course? I assume this is for complete beginners? Thanks in advance.
    Sarah

    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

      Hi Sarah, The course is for beginners and improvers. It is teacher-lead so everyone is learning something every week, but all are working on their own pieces to their own ability at their own pace. The teachers are all qualified art teachers, generally well experienced, but young and energetic. We start back on Tuesday 8th of September. You can book a three trial class package to start with if you have any concerns as to whether the class will suit you. Best regards. Paul

    Hi, I would like to take up a drawing / painting class and am not sure if painting or drawing class would suit best. I have done an acrylic course many years ago and did art up to leaving cert (many many years ago !), however, I feel I would benefit from direction in the actual drawing i.e. how to get things “right”, so to speak – could you recommend a class (evenings would suit as I work during the day), thanks a mill. Regards. Caroline

    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

      Hi Caroline, We have a very good Drawing Class on Tuesday evenings with Jill which would be very good for artists looking to improve drawing skills. Otherwise Orla runs a great painting class on Mondays and will support you developing a range of painting skills, techniques and styles. Otherwise there is a new painting class with Eimear on Thursday suitable for beginners. Best regards, Paul

  4. Sue says:

    Hi,

    When does the new term for beginners drawing start? Do you supply materials or is there a list of materials needed?

    Sue

    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

      Hi Sue, The term just started last week. The materials for in-class activities are generally provided and the teachers will advise what to buy if you are working on your own projects at home. Give us a quick call on 01 4990614 to book – no charge for class missed. Paul

    Hi Paul

    Can you please see my message above and let me know which class you think might suit – thanks a mill.

  6. Clare McIntyre says:

    Hi there, it is a long time since I picked up a pencil so I would consider myself a beginner. When does your next course for adults begin and are the ‘beginners’ in the class real beginners [if that makes sense]?

    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

      Hi Clare, We have (real) beginners joining the classes all the time. The teachers are all qualified, experienced Art Teachers. They plan their lessons to teach and reinforce core skills on a constant basis, just exploring different subject matter, styles and techniques. They spend most of their time on one to one, or small group discussions. There will be more advanced people in every class – they tend to be very welcoming and helpful to beginners. Give us a call on 01 4990614 – we can set you up with a block of trial classes if you are concerned about committing up front. Paul

  7. Louise says:

    Can you tell me if there are any plans to hold an evening drawing class on the Northside of Dublin? Thanks

    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

      Hi Louise, We are looking at plans at the moment for expanding our adult classes next September to one of our venues on the Northside of Dublin. Since Brushstrokes closed down we are getting lots of enquiries. Regards, Paul

  8. Nicola Dowling says:

    Hi,
    I was wondering if you could tell me if adults can begin a course at any time or would I have to wait til the beginning of the next course. I haven’t picked up a pencil in years but loved working with oil pastel and charcoal whilst in school. I was looking at your drawing course but am wondering if you have any advice on which course might be most suitable? It would have to be an evening course as I work during the day.
    Many thanks

    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

      Hi Nicola, You can join our classes at any stage. While the teachers are following a programme they have plenty of time for one on one; and they re-enforce the core skills all the time with demonstrations and discussion. The Tuesday PM Drawing Class is a really good class, or there is a cool painting class on Mondays; or beginners painting on Thursdays. Call 01 4063915 for more advice. Best regards, Paul

  9. Bogdan says:

    Hi ,
    Please can you tell me if you do classes one to one. Need to learn some shading techniques and need help with that. I’m a beginner and never painted before . Thank you!

    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

      Hi Bogdan, We don’t facilitate one to one. Our teachers are fully employed with classes each day. We cover shading in detail at the Adult Drawing Classes and the Beginners Painting Classes. Regards, Paul

  10. Sarah says:

    Hi I am just wondering if the adult drawing classes are still in operation at the moment. Is it too late to apply and also do the classes run through the summer? Thank you.

    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

    Thank you

  13. Eka says:

    I cannot commit to a block of classes because of my work which involves travelling. Do you have provision for drop ins whenever I am able? I’m interested in learning how to draw. Thanks

    • Paul.Shorte@artzone.ie says:

      Sorry Eka, Our terms are structured and priced on a term basis. Where there are places available we could agree a fee for an agreed set of dates within any one term, in advance. Regards, Paul
