About The Art Classes Melbourne

Art Classes Melbourne first opened it’s doors in the beginning of 2007, from a cosy Artist Studio inside the Kinross Arts Centre. After 12 years at the Kinross we have now relocated to a new art studio in Box Hill North. The Art School is led by Lilia Varetsa who is an accomplished visual artist, illustrator and a photographer.

Art Classes Melbourne (Varetsa Studio) is a warm, inviting and relaxing environment, where you will have the opportunity to expand and enrich your artistic skills and inner creativity and have fun while improving your technique. We provide you with all art materials you need to get you started on your art project. Our art lessons are held in a private art studio and most are limited to one student at a time, although we can cater for group classes, we find that the most benefit is gained at our one-on-one art tuition. Our art program aims to inspire, enrich and build up your confidence in drawing, painting and sketching.

At our art studio everyone can explore their artistic skills and express themselves in a creative manner supported and guided by experienced and well qualified teachers and professional artists, all our art tutors and staff hold a current Working With Children licence. All our Art Classes are tailored to your individual needs, recognising that everyone has different personalities, learning styles and motives for creating art. In our art lessons we cover the fundamental basics of painting and drawing, advanced techniques in watercolour painting, oil painting and other types of art materials. We teach you the principles of composition and drawing, art techniques, tonal values, drawing 3D shapes, using different art materials and colour theory.
