Art Lessons at Ravenscourt Arts

We are now able to offer lessons in our theatre space for beginner and intermediary artists to develop their skills under the tuition of professional fine artist, Natan Heber. The classes take place on a Thursday evenings from 7pm.


Rates for tuition vary according to your circumstances (there are special rates for the unemployed, elderly and those in full-time education).

Why not attend for a free taster session and chat through your requirements with Natan and he will take account of any unusual circumstances.

On this page you can see several examples of Natan’s own art and see clear evidence of his skill – the kind of skills he would hope to transfer to your palate. We are very proud to have this Brazilian as our artist-in-residence.

Natan will be one of the principal exhibitors at our annual art exhibition in June.

These tutorial groups are deliberately kept small so you can have the individual attention you deserve- but they are also big enough that you can made new friends in a warm and welcoming atmosphere
