Eastbourne Art Class

The Tuesday evening Art Class runs every week from 7.45pm – 10pm in the beautiful St John’s Parish Hall in Upper Meads, Eastbourne. There is also a Wednesday forenoon Art Class at the Hall, 11am – 1pm.

The workshop space is large and airy and on the ground floor with easy access.  There is free street parking.  You can leave your work in storage at the class. We supply easels, beverages and biscuits. We also have a large selection of art books. 10 classes costs £150 and you can join at any time. If you miss a class we’ll keep it in credit for you.

At Catriona’s art class you can learn to paint in oils, acrylics & multi-media in a friendly, creative environment. You can also learn how to draw in pencil, pen and charcoal. Students of all abilities are welcome, from absolute beginners to advanced painters, all of whom will benefit from Catriona’s individually tailored advice and encouragement. Catriona is assisted by her husband Roddy, who as a portrait artist counted many celebrities and public figures as his clients including the late Margaret Thatcher.

If you are interested in joining the class email Catriona at catriona@catrionamillar.com or call her on 07758 367479.

Private Art Tuition

Catriona also offers private art tuition in oil painting and drawing in her own Eastbourne studio. If you are new to oil painting Catriona can supply all materials, including a canvas, you just need to bring an apron or an old shirt.

If you are a beginner you will be learning the foundations of oil painting, which can be applied to every subject matter. Typically you will start with a classic still life. You will learn how to build your painting from the bare canvas up, so to begin with you will be underpainting and laying down tonal values. You’ll also learn about composition and observation and how to use colour and pattern effectively.

The cost is £25 per hour but a 2 hour session is recommend. There is also a reduced rate for block bookings. There is free off street parking, alternatively the station is just a five minute walk.
