Open Studio & Atelier Class
Casual classes for intermediate/advanced painters
FITZROY PAINTING WILL TEMPORARILY CLOSE FROM TUESDAY 17 MARCH WHILE THE COVID-19 SITUATION UNFOLDS. ANY CLASSES BOOKED WILL BE RESCHEDULED AS NECESSARY AND ALL BOOKINGS WILL BE CREDITED TO THE NEXT COURSE.
Open Studio & Atelier provides casual drop-in studio access for ongoing students wanting extra studio time or to make up a missed class, students wanting to develop their practice with guidance and feedback from a tutor, or artists who just need a place to paint.
Open Studio runs on Saturdays afternoons and can be booked as one-off or multiple sessions. Come as often as you like, simply select the date(s) you wish to attend and your spot will be reserved.
Past and current students, as well as outside artists are welcome to join us, to explore their own interests and direction, as well as have critical feedback, technical assistance, peer support or just studio access. This class is not suitable for beginners.
Bookings online only, studio access is from 2 -5 pm on Saturdays.
