Get in touch with your inner child again!

 

“So recommend this course with Michele. I am on the recent course and and absolutely loving it. The inner child is having a ball!!

Tuesday & Wednesday Adult Art Classes

I offer ADULT ART classes from my Art Studio in Paremata (Porirua, near Wellington), which is always full of relaxed fun, laughter, art and music. 

My motto is ‘everyone can be an artist’ and it’s ‘great to be different!’ I aim to instill a love of creating, bringing out confidence and expression in creative individuals. If you love art and creating, then join me each week to create a new art project – you will have 2 hours to be totally immersed in a creative environment – all materials supplied, no art experience necessary!  Connect with like minded people in a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere where there is no pressure to create a masterpiece – just time out to play a little with paint and maybe enjoy creating art!

Join me, relax and just create …

I love connecting with people and facilitating the opportunity for people to tap into their creative side. Through my art classes, I want anyone to feel that they can be inspired to be creative.

Please join me on a Tuesday Evening from 7pm – 9pm  OR a Wednesday morning 10am – 12pm 8 weeks (within the school term) of creative expression – no art experience necessary! Max 6 people per class in the studio, where we chat, laugh and create art …… while listening to great music and perhaps, sometimes enjoying a glass of wine or tea/coffee!

These classes run for 8 weeks (within the school term). Creative expression – no art experience necessary! 

Yes, you can join at anytime during the term. A drop in for a look see is $45 for the class. Please email me directly to enquire if there is a space available on a specific day.

What others say

“Michele created the most wonderful space for me to open to the idea of being creative and to re-discover the dormant artist within. A room full of freedom to express and explore colour and art again. At the same time I was feeling guided through the artistic process by her amazing knowledge and skill. I am loving every moment of it” – Marie

“So happy with the end results. Thanks Michele Courage for providing the space with your adult art classes to create and have fun along the way. I am loving my art classes.”

You are a super star and I feel totally honored to be taught so much more than art from you. Love you for all you give, your energy and inspiration to help others rise.  Bless you honey ❤ xx” 

“Our teaching team attended Michele’s totem pole workshop as part of a team building exercise. Upon arrival Michelle served us tea and coffee and explained the workshop. We got given aprons and our own totem pole to decorate. Throughout the workshop Michele was available to discuss ideas, give tips, help with painting techniques and mix paints to colours of our choices. We had a wonderful time, with relaxing music in the background and delicious home made cake and refreshments. The workshop was a wonderful opportunity for our busy teaching team to relax outside the classroom and spend some time together, not as teachers but as budding artists! I can confidently recommend Michele’s workshop as a fun filled relaxing team building exercise with the added bonus that you get to take something home at the end too!” – Anja Geelen – Principal.

My son has been attending Michele’s Monday after school classes for 2 terms now. These classes are awesome. Michele is an accomplished artist. Her passion and dedication to teaching art is obvious, and her studio is a happy industrious space. There is some structure to the classes. Michele starts each class by explaining a classical technique or artist’s style. The students then go to work to create a piece in that style. My boy just loves these classes. He comes home each Monday with a big smile and a sense of pride in the art he has created. – Victoria

Thank you Michele and Lisa for a delicious afternoon, that stimulated my senses! I enjoyed the fun and so appreciate the care and heart you both contributed to weave it all together so beautifully. – Lovelight – Susan
