Expressive Art Classes in the Northern Beaches

Come explore a wide range of dynamic expressive drawing and painting techniques through guided sessions each week, with full time practising artist Fiona Verity.

Based in Newport, Fiona’s studio is filled with interesting and inspiring organic and man made objects to paint and draw, and a fabulous selection of art books to reference. The studio is a short stroll from the inspiring beach landscape and surrounded by fine examples of native flora.

The classes are lively and fun and filled with demonstrations and opportunities to extend your art knowledge. All levels of artists welcome.

Fiona will guide you to find or develop your own visual language through her contemporary approach, leading you through a broad range of subjects from landscape to still life to people to pets.

Based at the Newport studio, with opportunities throughout the term to go out and describe local scenes.

Friday Sessions – 10am to 12.30pm
