NINA'S TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

"Anyone can learn to draw and paint". Teaching students how to "see", and open up to realise everything is a combination of line and space, tone and colour, perspective and proportion, balance and rhythm.

Art Courses for Adults

Primarily Nina's courses are practical, informative and are tailored to meet individual goals and abilities. Though the pace of this course is moderately fast moving it is designed for enjoyment and relaxation giving students time to explore their creative ability. Courses look at all stages of working a piece - from the initial concept to the finished work.  


Nina gives step by step demonstrations in different styles and disciplines - oils, acrylics, watercolours, pastels, charcoal, pen  and ink and pencils.



Beginners are encouraged to explore different mediums. More advanced students may opt to work in their preferred medium. Subject matter is mixed to include still life, interiors, scenery, animals, people and street scenes etc.. Basic drawing, composition, colour mixing and painting techniques are covered. More experienced students may wish and will be encouraged to explore their personal expression, through their own choice of work where Nina will guide and advise.  

Fee includes all materials, use of equipment  and complimentary tea / coffee.


Nina holds courses in Maynooth Co. Kildare throughout the year, starting January, March / April, September and November.
