KIRSTEN BOSTON ART STUDIO CLASSES-OIL SEASCAPE CLASSES

I am offering art classes from my studio outside North Berwick. As well as individual tuition there are also classes for small groups. You can either come along with one or two friends or just yourself and meet new ones at the class. 

The initial classes are for complete beginners, who will paint a seascape using oils.

 
 

I currently offer three different oil seascape  classes:

1. One day art class, group event – join up to two other people for a class. The cost per person is £115, including all materials. Use the Class Events Booking form to book.

2. One to one day class with Kirsten. The cost per day is £275, including all materials. Use the Studio Diary Booking form to book.

3. Bespoke day class. This is for  groups of up to three people wanting a fun day together in the studio. The standard cost for the group will be £345, but it could be more if you want to do something with expensive materials. Contact me first to check the price before using the Studio Diary Booking form to book.
