Pay As You Go: Galway Art Classes

All art classes are held every week throughout the year on a ‘pay-as-you-go’ basis. You will not be expected to sign up for ten classes (students are unable to commit to the time, and in some cases, 10 weeks can be cost prohibitive). ‘Pay-as-you-go’ for the weekly class is €20 per drawing session and all materials will be provided for the first few weeks while you settle in. Oil painting classes are €25 (or €20 if you bring your own paints and canvas).

Course Content

Tea and coffee are provided as are all materials. The Life Drawing class is a two-hour session every Wednesday evening 6.30pm-8.30pm €20 with a different model every week. Please enquire about student rates.

“The class is fully tutored and I attained my BA Degree at a central London college. I am passionate about observational drawing and am a motivational teacher. My students develop at their own rate and improve under my tuition.” – Mark D-Smith, tutor

In terms of class format, things change all the time – classes are ongoing throughout the year and, because you will be working with all levels of students from total beginners and improvers up to advanced students, classes do not stick rigidly to a set programme or dictate what materials students should use.

Variable Options

As far as setting the pose and duration goes, these will alternate this from time to time. The studio is in the centre of Galway at The Bridge Mills on Bridge Street, so is a great location for students.

Because classes are ‘Pay-as-you-go’, it is expected that you give 24 hrs notice if you are unable to attend a previously booked session.
