Try a different art technique!

Each art class can focus on a unique theme and explores a range of styles and techniques. During our art lessons we provide our students with all the art materials they might need, so they can find the medium they resonate with the most, be it oil paints, watercolour or inks.


Inspiration comes largely by positive example and our art teachers really take the time to guide their students, so that our art students feel the desire to create beautiful art all by themselves – we strive to inspire and unlock your creativity!

Learn from the best!

Our art tutors are passionate about art education – we don’t mean to brag but our art lessons are run by teachers who are award-winning, accomplished artists and are still practising their art for a living, and now they want to share their passion and love for art with you!

Welcome to the Art Classes Melbourne!

We are Art Classes Melbourne – we provide affordable art lessons in a private art studio, we teach drawing lessons, oil painting, acrylic painting, academic drawing, portraiture, abstract, children book illustration, mixed media art lessons, watercolour painting and more! We welcome all skill levels from beginners and advanced!

We aim to limit our art lessons to a one student per class, so our art lessons are individual, one-on-one art tuitions, which allows us to focus on the individual skill level of our student and fix any gaps in the technique, that way our students learn faster and benefit from the art teacher’s individual attention. Our art tutors are professional artists, who are passionate about teaching art and take the time to share their knowledge. Recent research has shown that offering children an art program assists in their social and emotional development and has improved their academic outcomes. We offer short and long, day and evening art classes for kids, teenagers and adults – from beginners to advanced.

Sometimes it’s more fun to learn in a group of friends – so we also offer small group art classes, you can choose a class for two people up to a group of 4 (class for you and three friends at the same time).

Thanks for the wonderful and informative lesson Lillia! So proud of my first watercolour painting! Thanks again and I’ll see you at my next lesson ?

KhenetteMelbourne, VIC

I enjoy the drawing very much and Lilia is so patient to teach me.  I do not need to look for the teacher so I am so relaxed now!

JeanyMelbourne, VIC

The great thing about Lilia’s art classes is that she can tune in instinctively and with enthusiasm and real knowledge to development both beginners and advanced painters, which is no mean trick. Attending small group classes by Varetsa Studio Art Classes is always a pleasure and you cannot help but come away with confidence in your work!

LindaMelbourne, VIC

Lilia is a fantastic teacher. She insists on structure as a fundamental to all work, and this guarantees achievement regardless of ability. If you are a novice or a pro she can provide the necessary input for success and enjoyment.
