Art Courses Birmingham
Welcome to Art Courses Birmingham, where you can find quality classes in oil painting, drawing and painting techniques, and 1-to-1 tuition in various mediums.
Birmingham needs more outlets for the nurturing of drawing and painting, so I decided to create that very thing by setting up these friendly, fun, yet focused art courses in the heart of Birmingham city centre.
The aim is to create more opportunity for those people who want to be creative, but aren’t sure where to find it. If you desire to paint, draw, or learn to use oils, in a relaxed and fun environment, then look no further than here!
Due to the ongoing uncertainty and unease regarding Covid, and after the success of last semesters live art classes via Zoom, I will continue to have all the art courses online for September.
The aim is to hold the art courses at the venue in the new year.
This feels like the safest option for everyone at the present time.

Art Courses Birmingham Testimonials
I really enjoyed the recent 12-week art techniques course. We used Zoom, in view of the current coronavirus lockdown, and this worked very well. Peter is an excellent teacher and gave us plenty of individual tuition, adjusted for our various levels of experience. I hadn't ever done an art course, but I was very pleased with the range of techniques which I started using during the course. This has started me on a new hobby, and I am looking forward to taking another of Peter's courses.
I did the Art Techniques class on Zoom. Peter is an excellent teacher, . We had immediate feedback as well as detailed feedback on completed pictures emailed after the lesson. I am relatively new to drawing and painting, and apart from learning a lot, had a lot fun as well. I enjoyed it so much ... I registered for Peter's ' Introduction to oil painting ' class starting in September also on Zoom.
This course was a lifesaver for me and provided a wonderful opportunity to develop my oil painting skills. The expert instruction and demonstration delivered with such ease by Peter made the whole experience so enjoyable. Too much information I will need to enrol on a future course to process this one! Thank you Peter.
I wanted to draw and paint all my life, particularly as this was not part of school in India at the time! So I waited until I retired and joined Peter’s class. I have had the opportunity to try different mediums and techniques. I even dared to draw in a museum setting with Peter’s encouragement. I have enjoyed learning and continue to do so because the atmosphere in the class is very informal and relaxed. I never thought I would be able to draw and paint but with Peter’s help, I am thoroughly enjoying it. Peter is a passionate, interested teacher

I have been doing lessons with Peter for over one year. Learning with him is quite fun but effective at the same time. Although he plans the topic for each lesson, he is quite flexible and allows people to go at their own pace. He is also happy for students to develop their own work during lessons if they prefer
