Painting Classes

All Levels: Ideal for Beginners & Improvers but Advanced Students will benefit too:

Excellent Classes lead by Real Art Teachers.  The Artzone Adult Painting Classes aim to help develop student’s skills and techniques so you can get the most out of your painting experience. During the course we aim to cover areas like Landscape, Still Life, Portraiture and Painting from Observation.

We primarily work with Acrylics but do not limit ourselves to any one medium combining acrylic paint with charcoal, pastels etc….

Throughout the course we work on different skills, methods and techniques in paint, such as colour mixing and paint application. While the course is taught through brief demonstrations, tutorials and group discussions each week, the majority of the time is dedicated to your own work. Students will get plenty of individual support and direction from the Class Teacher to help develop your own style and process.

    Just wondering when these courses start?

    • says:

      The classes run throughout the academic year Tamara. There are people joining all the time. Best regards, Paul

  2. Cathy says:

    Hi there,

    I am interested in joining one of the adult morning classes – I am just wondering, what materials would I need to bring on the first week? If there is space in the classes I would love to join on the week of the 17th of March.

    Thanks and all the best


    • says:

      Hi Cathy, There is space in either Painting Classes (Monday with David, or Thursday with Liam). The Drawing Class is full at the moment but there will be a place free for Term 4 starting on 18th March with Louise. There are also places available in the Watercolour Painting class with Eimear on Wednesdays. There are materials available free at the class to get you up and running. Most people like to buy their own set of materials – the teachers will advise; or we can order a starter pack for you. We have a special deal with Specialist Crafts. Best regards, Paul

  3. Mo Murray says:

    I am interested in your water colour classes and would like to do a 3 class trial pack in October. Is this possible? And if so when would i need to book?

    • says:

      No problem Mo. You can book your trial classes at any stage. The Watercolour painting class really took off last year and is perfect for beginners and improvers. The classes are starting back in the second week of September. People are beginning to book at this stage. Give us a call on 01 4990614 when you want to register and Sarah or Rachel will sort you out. Best regards, Paul

    I was just wondering, are there any places left on the Monday evening Painting course, 7pm-9pm? I enjoyed the Monday morning class last year and would like to get back into painting.
    Many thanks,

    I am interested in painting/drawing evening classes for beginners, is there a place in one of your running classes ?

    • says:

      Hi Salma, Our classes will be perfect for you – the tutors are all qualified and practicing Art Teachers.

  6. Ronie says:

    I was wondering if perhaps you might have classes in the Castleknock/Blanchardstown area, myself and some other ladies who are all retired would just love to join a group for art classes.
    Thanks for your time.

    • says:

      Sorry Ronie, Our Adult Classes are run at our own Studios beside Rathfarnham Castle. They are really good classes but I appreciate they may be a bit far away for your group. If you would like to try a class at any stage give me a call 01 4990614 and I will set you up with a free trial. Best regards, Paul

  7. Christina Roisin says:

    Hi there,
    I was just wondering, are there any places left on the Monday or Thursday evening Painting course, 7pm-9pm? I am also interested in the starter pack that is mentioned above.

    Kind regards

    • says:

      Hi Christina, There are places in both classes. The Monday class with Orla has had a few beginners join recently, but there are places with Paul Mac on Thursdays as well. Just give us a quick call on 01 4990614 to book a trial on either night. There is basic equipment available in the classes to get you up and running. We have starter sets if you need one for yourself. Best regards, Paul

  8. Sindy Offer says:

    Hi I am interested in an evening painting class preferably watercolours.

    When does your next class start, and are there places still available.

    Many thanks

      Hi Sindy, We will be launching an Evening Watercolours Class with Eimear on Wednesdays in September. At the moment with have two acrylics painting classes with availability on Monday with Orla and Thursday with Paul Mac. Both are very experienced teachers and get great feedback. Give us a quick call on 01 4990614 or email to book a trial class. Happy Easter! Paul

  9. Amanda Deasy says:

    I am really keen to join a daytime painting class. I’m an absolute beginner, having only played around with some acrylics at home by myself.

    Can you let me know if or when there might be some space available, for an untalented, but enthusiastic novice!


    • says:

      Hi Amanda, Our Monday morning class (10am – 12 noon) with Eimear would be perfect for you. Otherwise there is a class on Thursdays with Liam (same times). The teachers are all qualified Art Teachers so they are great to work with. The classes are teacher-lead, but they are very social and they get great results. Give us a quick call on 01 4990614 or email to book a trial class. Happy Easter! Paul

    Hi there
    Both my daughters attend artzone classes after school on Griffith Ave and I just noticed that you do adult art classes in Rathfarnham. Are there any adult art classes on the North side of the city?


    • says:

      We only run adult classes in Rathfarnham at the moment Louise. It is very small element of what we do. We are meeting with Dublin City Council about expanding our services in The Red Stables. We may launch Adult Classes as part of that programme. We will email everyone in the database with any news like that. Many thanks, Paul
