Art Classes

Start is an astar based studio in the city bowl.

We are all creative beings however in our busy lives we are not often given the space and time to nurture and feed our creative selves.  The Start studio is a beautiful, tranquil space to:

  • Discover the artist within
  • Do something different and away from the stress of ordinary life
  • Express your unique creativity
  • Have fun making art spontaneously
  • Explore a wide variety of mixed media materials
  • Embark on a journey of self-discovery
  • Discover art as an infinite source of wellness for body, mind, heart and spirit

...giving you the opportunity to be fully present with yourself, to let go of the inner critic and self judgement and to play like a child again.

Awakening Spirit through Art is a non-judgemental approach to art making where the creative process is the focus rather than the art products. Small groups of adults are inspired and guided through art processes in a nurturing, supportive space. Each person’s unique creative spirit is respected and celebrated.

No previous art experience is required.

Classes available:

  • Monday and Tuesday evenings 18.00 – 20.30
  • Friday morning 09.30 – 12.00

Also on offer are lots of exciting one-off art evenings, couples evenings, hens parties, pregnancy processes and birthday party offering

Some student feedback...

Am absolutely loving the course and the way you give it. So amazing how each week is SO different emotionally, energetically, spiritually and how each colour gives such new insights, small and big!!

I just wanted to say thank you. I am loving the colour energy course, it's fascinating to see what is happening on a subconscious level inside me come out on canvas and thus being able to converse more deeply with what's really happening in these beautiful but pretty intense times.

I don't feel like I thanked you enough for the the space and energy you created either in last years chance art course, it really was a beautiful, transforming journey and healing period for me after such a turbulent year! Am very grateful to have met you when I did!!

Thank you for the classes - I'm really enjoying it! Amazing to see how the colour-weeks play out in 'real' life!!

This has been my first endeavour into painting - although it is something I wanted to do for a long time. I felt about the canvas the way other people would feel if you put a blank page before them. This is changing and I am now looking forward to the 'challenge' of the blank canvas!

I'm so amazed at the outcome! I think the next step is to divorce myself completely from the outcome - I did manage to do this a little bit with the green - and I was even more amazed! I love the journey on this course.

I loved our sessions & felt transformation happening inside me

it is incredible.. takes you on an emotional journey of self discovery & gets you in touch with your inner creative self. It's not about doing works of art, it's about self expression

I found it more therapeutic than anything else, & is beneficial to anyone, no matter what your activities are in your day to day life. It also helps you see things differently & think out of the box
