Painting and Drawing Classes in Belfast, Dublin and East Clare

a taste of Art at the ParkJulie Douglas is well known for the tranquil, calm and creative environment she brings to her weekly and weekend art courses.

Julie has twenty years of experience in teaching, from beginners to degree level, and her courses include Drawing, Water Colour, Portraiture, Oil painting and Portfolio Preparation. She uses Traditional drawing techniques so you learn to draw what you see.

As well as these, Julie also offers a Distance Learning Course, which runs over one year and covers a range of media and workshops. This is very popular and will transform your work.

Classes are very small (no more that 10 students), and are friendly and relaxed. Julie is a gentle, encouraging teacher. You won’t feel intimidated in her class, but instead you’ll be amazed at how good your own work is by the end of the day. You’ll be inspired, motivated and feeling better about yourself – students walk taller when they’re going home!

Julie Douglas also offers a selection of courses out-and-about round Ireland and Europe, drawing and painting on location. And if you have a group of at least 5 students, Julie will come to you!
