These are not your typical or traditional art classes! Artist Jane Beinart’s approach is to encourage you to get started with creating by being curious, exploring what art materials can do, to experiment and have a play and to see what happens as a result.
This way of creating art is very similar to mindfulness – helping you to really be in the moment while making art, and to really build on your creative confidence and quieten down your inner critic. These art classes are really not the traditional sort of watercolour class that often springs to mind when you might think about art classes!
Coaching rather than teaching
She is also a qualified coach (something which makes her quite a unique kind of art teacher!), and her teaching style is influenced by this. Her classes are very much about facilitating you to make art in your own way and grow in creative confidence, rather than teaching in a traditional sense. She will encourage you to develop your own unique form of creative style and expression, and to discover what you are capable of producing.
Producing your own individual artwork
Jane will enable you to paint what you would most love to be able to – whether that is landscapes, abstracts, still lives or people – or anything else! You will produce artwork at your own pace and which is completely unique to you – because she believes that the best way to learn to paint (and to continue painting in the longer term) is through exploration and by choosing what it is we want to paint, based on what we enjoy looking at.
