Online Art classes

Apart from conducting weekly painting classes and master classes for small groups for both beginners and more advanced painters in my studio in La Herradura, I am now also offering online art classes.
I believe anybody can paint and find their creative spark, all you need is the enthusiasm to find out for yourself.

I am offering these online classes in three different ways.

Weekly painting class

This class is taking place on Wednesday mornings from 10.00 to 13.00 CET.  The class is a joint class with some participants coming to the actual class in person and others participate via a Zoom connection, for which you will receive an invitation to join. I am now offering these classes on a 2-week basis. (Used to be a 4-week class), but due to the Covid situation I like to offer people this option so that they don’t feel obliged to commit to an entire season. The cost for this class is €30.00 for the 2 weeks, to be paid in advance. Payment via PayPal is possible. You can also pay via a bank transfer, for this please send an email to renatevannijen@gmail.com  

Testimonial of an online student

Reaction from a former student, Pam French: “Renate, you are a wonderful teacher, inspirational, and it’s been a while ago now, but I shall never forget what I learnt from you”

Why an interactive online class and not just an online video course? I am all for people learning to create a painting or pick up that paint brush again, whether that is online or not. Painting can be a very relaxing and even meditative experience. Your head will be free of worries when you focus on your artwork. I applaud any art course. Online classes are nothing new. Bob Ross springs to mind. The trick is to find the class/teacher that suits you. Perhaps you prefer to watch a teacher doing his or her trick and then follow that example and that is fine. If you prefer some personal guidance and a teacher helping you when you get stuck, and being in the company (yes, even online) of other painting enthusiasts, is a different experience. I often hear people say “I have all the materials at home, but I just don’t do it on my own”. All you need to do is find the right class for you! Whether that is me? I don’t know, that is for you to decide, but you are more than welcome to give it a try!   

What another participant, Lis Larsen from Finland,  said:Renate’s online Art class was the 1st one for me ever. I loved her warm presence and I highly appreciate her method. She was so supportive and gently guiding in those moments when I lost hope.”

Everybody can work on a subject of their choice. However, if you have never painted before I will send you an example that you can work from. I love to help people get to their ‘next’ level in their painting adventure.

If you are interested, please contact me directly via email renatevannijen@gmail.com or send me a Whatsapp message on 0034-655211276. Most people create at least one painting during a 2 week period.

What some other participants, from the UK,  said:

Siobhan: “Delighted with my painting on Renate’s amazing painting course. Her gentle, informative, wise teaching was really helpful and gave me confidence to explore more of the techniques of painting. A wonderful experience. Can’t recommend this course highly enough. Renate is a wonderful teacher full of wise technical know-how. It’s a lovely companionable space and a chance to create some great art.”

Beverley: “This has been an absolutely lovely experience – Thanks so much for offering this”

Suzanne:  “Informative and relaxing online art course. She is a supportive and empathetic tutor – it has been fun as a group and also a great encouragement to find the courage to paint again(in acrylics – a new medium for me). Highly recommended!”

If you are serious about developing your painting skills, and having lots of fun during the process, then this might be the right class for you. I have taught many beginners and more advanced painters during my painting classes and workshops, which I have been conducting since 2006, and I would love to inspire you and explain all you need to know.  If you scroll down you can find other options for online art classes.
