FAQ

I've never done Beginner Painting before — will I be ok?

YES! We cater for absolute beginners. Most of the people in the class will be in the same boat. You will find these classes very gentle and kind on people who are completely new to painting. You will be amazed at what you will learn in a supportive and positive learning environment.

How do I join the Live (In-Person or Zoom) Classes?

We now have up to 6 in-person spaces available in our Bellbowrie studio!

You can also join in via the video Zoom app. It's free to download and can be used on your phone, tablet or computer.

In the future, we look forward to be able to open up more Live spaces in our physical studio in Bellbowrie, Brisbane.

How do I join the Anytime (Online Video) Classes?

Just sign up to the course you want and you'll be able to access all your class recordings, resources and more under "My Dojo" over at dojo.zenartart.com.

What materials do I need?

We have a range of quality painting and potting materials an equipment in our studio, and post Australia-wide. All our Pathways come with suggested material kits so you'll always have everything you need.

I always recommend buying the best quality paints you can afford. They will make your artworks look really amazing and boost your confidence.

Do you teach children?

Yes, we have classes available for ages eight and up!

Our Mini Courses and Anytime classes are great options for kids, as they can explore their inner creativity around school and other commitments.

Our Live classes welcome keen teens in person, or younger children only via Zoom with parental supervision.

We also run different workshops throughout the year that suit all ages. You can sign up here to stay in the loop of our upcoming events.

My teaching builds the ability to see what is truly there, so I can guarantee that their drawings (and/or paintings) would improve out of sight, and they will learn skills they can use for a lifetime.
