Weekly painting classes

My name is Renate and I love to help people find their creative spark and guide them to develop their own unique style. I’m a profesional, internationally exhibited artist for over 35 years. Since 2006 I conduct art classes both in my studio and online. I love to see the enthusiasm and results (some have gone on to become succesful artists) of those who have attended my class.

Woud you like to find out whether you have it in you to create some great artworks. Would you just like to relax and get away from the busy thoughts in your brain. Then joining an artclass might just be the right thing for you!


I conduct weekly painting classes  and master classes for small groups. These art classes are suitable for both beginners and more advanced painters and can take place in my studio. For information about my Saturday morning online class scroll down.

I believe anybody can paint and find their creative spark, all you need is the enthusiasm to find out for yourself. 

Weekly painting class on Monday from 10.00 to 13.00 CET.


Are you staying in, or somewhere near La Herradura and you fancy coming to a weekly painting class? Feel free to join! Suitable for beginners and more experienced painters. (not suitable for children).

I offer these weekly classes on a 4-week basis, but you can try one class first (15 Euros if you have your own material or 20 Euros if you want me to provide materials). After that, if you decide to continue, you can pay for a 4-week participation. The reason for this is that spaces are limited so I like to know who is coming.

If you can only attend 2 or 3 weeks in a row, then feel free to contact me for availability.

This is an ongoing class and those who have already attended get first choice to continue, but if you only want to try a class first, provided there is space, you are very welcome too, see above.

You can expect to create one painting during a 2 week period. There is an option for 2 painters to work in the beautiful patio. Only suitable if you are a dog lover.

Especially now during Covid time – the maximum number of participants is 6 (and this also depends on weather conditions as some have to work in the outdoor patio) – so 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.  You can also join my online class, see information below.

I have taught many beginners and more advanced painters during my painting classes and workshops and would love to inspire you and explain all you need to know.

After you’ve reserved your space you can pay the amount due for the entire 4-week course (60 Euros if you have your own material and 80 Euros if you like me to provide materials)  in advance via PayPal: renatevannijen@gmail.com   

You can also book by phone if you like  0034 655211276. Terms and Conditions: Because the space is not too big I ask people to pay in advance to reserve their place. If you then, unexpectedly cannot make it to a certain class you can cancel at the latest 48 hours in advance and recover the class on another date, providing there is space – there usually is. 

Online classes weekly art classes for women only – sorry guys

Would you like to paint from the privacy of your home, your garden or your terrace? You can now join a weekly painting class via Zoom, so an online class. I’ve decided to offer an online possibility, because due to the Covid19 situation I can offer less spaces in my studio.  Classes are paid in advance. (50€ for 4 weeks). Each online class is two hours. This class is taking place on Saturday morning CET 10.30-12.30 (UK time 9.30 to 11.30)

Fancy trying this out? You can join one online class for free to see whether you like it. After that you pay the amount above.

You might think that painting classes online don’t work! I’d like to tell you otherwise as I’ve now been teaching online since April 2020. Check out what others are saying here:  https://renatevannijen.com/online-art-classes/

I speak Dutch, English, German, Spanish and Italian, so classes are available to a variety of nationalities.
