The Art Box

About Us

Palette and Water PotThe Art Box has been running art classes taught by Anne in Leaside Church and Community Centre, Ware since 2008. She also runs classes at The Peace Memorial Hall, Codicote. We aim to provide enjoyable and fun art classes for all, ranging from complete beginners to those who have painted before but maybe not for years.


Anne who leads the classes gives guidance, tuition and encouragement to all.


In our fortnightly classes we concentrate mainly on watercolour with the occasional pencil drawing sessions. From time to time we also run all-day workshops in pastels and acrylics. These workshops are not designed for the complete beginner as the subjects are more technical and often require a little experience to complete.


In the summer we sometimes add an “en plein air” day or two. These all-day sessions are aimed at painters of all abilities who fancy painting outside.


Having been on courses where you are given a large and often expensive shopping list of equipment we have learnt that it is much better to provide equipment for everyone to use as part of the class fee. We provide good quality named brand equipment as Anne’s philosophy is that you have to have reasonable paint, paper and brushes to produce something you are happy with.


If you would like to know what we currently have scheduled or more about how our classes are run check out our CLASSES pages.
