Whether you are completely new to painting and are looking to begin dabbling with paint, or are a serious painter who is looking to take your art to new heights with an experienced professional artist - this group class is for you!
During these 6 weeks, I will guide participants in creating something from their own unique creative expression. I will demonstrate to you how to get the most out of your own natural artistic abilities and unique creative expression, whatever your level of experience. Throughout the 6 weeks, each person will receive a certain level of focused attention to enhance their work and take it to next level. I will share with you my vast knowledge of materials, techniques, and artistic secrets I have learned throughout my years of painting to fast-track you to whereever your creativity is calling you to go.
These classes are for you to paint your own unique piece in a group setting. It is highly encouraged that no two pieces in the class have the same subject. You will be guided to begin painting from your own unique expression from a subject that speaks to you!
Classes Start Monday 11-1pm Oct 23rd or Wednesday 6:30 - 8:30pm October 25th, and run for 6 weeks Places are limited to 12.
Easels are provided, but a recommended materials list is sent out for you to bring you own painting supplies.

Whether you are completely new to painting and are looking to begin dabbling with paint, or are a serious painter who is looking to take your art to new heights in 2023 with an experienced professional artist - this class is for you!
I will show you how to get the most out of your own natural artistic abilities and unique creative expression, whatever your level of experience. You will receive one-on-one focused attention from myself. I will share with you my vast knowledge of materials, techniques, and artistic secrets I have learned throughout my years of painting to fast track you to where ever your creativity is calling you to go.
Classes are structured and tailored to your precise needs. For example, if you are looking to learn the basics first, we can work through that in the first few weeks. Or if you are would like to learn through working on one particular piece, we can structure the classes so that we work and learn through one piece with the aim of having a completed piece at the end.
You can choose classes for a single class, or 4 & 6 classes, and can do mornings to evenings. Places are limited.
Easels are provided and a certain amount of art supplies, but I reccommend you bring your own.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
During the past year, I have been lucky enough to take Art Classes with Maria Johnston; initially on a one-to-one basis in her studio, and then later online during the lockdown.
I consider myself lucky to be one of Maria’s students because not only is she an extremely talented artist, but she is also a wonderfully kind, patient, and encouraging teacher.
Maria offers suggestions for improvement and feedback with great respect and gentleness.
She is very easy to talk to, open to ideas, and always good-humored.
I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every class I have taken with Maria, and I am very happy with the progress I have made in a relatively short space of time.
I highly and unreservedly recommend Maria Johnston, Artist and teacher.

"I went to Maria for help with a painting commission I was doing but despite being an artist myself I found myself stuck in a rut with the acrylic paints and the techniques I needed to get it as realistic as I hoped.
She was amazing, she taught me all the skills I needed including how to hold and use the brush correctly, specific paints to use, and techniques when painting.
She is insanely knowledgeable as both an artist with her own talent but also on the art materials and tools you need to get what you want. Would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone!"
