More about my Art Classes + Workshops in Stanford (near Hermanus)

I offer group and individual painting classes and workshops in the Stanford/Hermanus area of the Overberg.

If you’ve been considering plein air landscape painting, I can help you get started. Painting outdoors does not have to be intimidating if you are well prepared, and that includes your mindset.

Workshops are generally a one or two day landscape painting event at a venue with up to ten people. 

Classes are two hours a week and can be individual or two people at a time. I will advise you on what art supplies and equipment you will need to get hold of, depending on what medium you would like to paint in.

I will take you out on location to paint and provide direction, advice and support. In case of inclement weather, we will choose a location where there are sheltered spaces with good views available.

To enquire about classes or workshops, please email me at or click here for a contact form.
