Art Classes Central Coast
Do you live on the Central Coast? Have you thought of taking Art Classes. You can draw and paint you know. Maybe not as brilliantly well as you would like to right now but you have the potential to be an an amazing artist. How do I know this – because over the last 20 years I have taught literally hundreds of students and all of them have made some improvement, and by far and away the vast majority of them in fact all except two of them, have made giant strides. If you would like to see some of my students work – take a peek –
Art Classes Central Coast – offers a very central location in the heart of Springfield/East Gosford. I have students coming from as far away as Hornsby and Toukley.
So if you have always wanted to take an Art Class but thought you need to have talent to start – Well think again!!
In my experience – a desire to try is the most important thing.
I would love the opportunity to work with you and show you what you can do!!
WHAT YOU CAN LEARN
All of the following media are taught : Oils, Pastels, Acrylics Mixed Media, Drawing, Water colours, Busting Creative Blocks
My studio is in Springfield on the Central Coast 80 K’s North of Sydney, Australia
The classes are currently quite small with no more than 5 students at a time. This means you get really individualized attention and work in a small intimate environment . I tailor each class to your own personal needs. This means you may be working on pastels doing a still life, while someone else is doing a portrait in oils. You will find the other students very supportive and friendly. We even stop for a cuppa and a chat half way through the lesson. This gives everyone a chance to get to know each other and we will discuss everything from how everyone’s work is going to what movies we’ve seen..
So this is where we play. Plenty of room to fling our paint around…

WHAT MY STUDENTS SAY ABOUT THE CLASSES
Josephine Marr May 2012
“Kadira is a fantastic teacher, from my very first class with her I was looking at everything from a new perspective. No matter what mess I get myself into with my art, Kadira always has the perfect solution and advice to help me overcome the hurdles. She is incredibly talented and is such an inspiration. I feel very lucky to have found her classes and to have met someone who is so passionate about art and whom is willing to share her love and knowledge for art with other people.”
“At last, I have discovered art classes that suit me perfectly. Kadira Jennings is a very skilled and experienced artist and has an extraordinary ability to bring out the creative best in her students. Although I have always had an interest in art, creating a finished product I was happy with seemed to elude me. Kadira provides personalized tuition, small classes and individual attention. This means that my artistic skills have progressed in leaps and bounds in a relatively short period of time – something I was not expecting when I started. I am now producing art works I feel happy to frame and hang on the walls in my own home. I thank Kadira for her special combination of artistic ability, persistence, patience and lovely personality. She has helped me to open my eyes to creativity, providing a comfortable, fun environment in which it can safely blossom. I thoroughly recommend Kadira Jennings to anyone interested in pursuing their creative side.” Deborah Lhota Director Advanced Holistic Research Pty Ltd.
Sue Wilkinson -31 March 2010
I have been an art student of Kadira Jennings for the past six months. I have not participated in any art form since leaving school just over 40 years ago. Kadira is teaching me to paint with watercolours. I love the soft translucent, as well as the strong colours watercolours offers. I have found the classes Kadira offers have opened my eyes to everything around me. Kadira’s love and enthusiasm for all mediums of art, shows through in her expertise of teaching.
The small friendly classes allow for a substantial amount of individual attention. Her subtle guidance is warm and friendly allowing one to feel confident to express yourself. Each time I leave class I feel as though I have achieved and learnt something new and can’t wait for the next session. I feel very confident in recommending Kadira’s art classes.
Jo Hawkins – April 2010
I have been painting with Kadira for a year now.
In that time I have gone from a complete novice to having developed a sound understanding of the colour and the techniques required for watercolour.
Kadira is a wonderful teacher, very encouraging but offering welcomed constructive criticism. Her eye for detail is incredible. Although I still have much to learn I feel that when I do pick up my brush now I do so with confidence.
- Private Sessions: These are one on one sessions where you have my undivided exclusive attention all to your self. I find that sometimes people begin with a couple of these sessions if they are a bit shy and not comfortable with working in a group. This builds your confidence and gets you off to a really good start. You can choose a lesson that is for one hour or more if you choose. Your investment in these sessions is $50 an hour.
- Creativity Coaching: These sessions look at a range of areas within a creative practice and work on different issues that might arise. These might include; addressing creative blocks, finding inspiration, personal creative directions, special skill development and much more.
- Things To Come: I plan to put a community site attached to the blog at some point this year. This will give you access to others on the same journey as you are. It will provide a place to find like minded people and somewhere to make connections, trade resources and ideas, and help you feel part of a much larger community. Sometimes as artists and creative people we can feel rather isolated as our work is by nature generally a solitary pursuit.
