I used to be one of the many people who wished I could create realistic artworks, but was frustrated in my attempts from my pre-teen years. I believed I didn’t have talent and started fearing art making even though I loved drawing and painting.


During 1998 I was introduced to Draw on the Right Side of the Brain by Betty Edwards and it changed my life. Her method of teaching art to absolute beginners with little or no talent convinced me that I wasn’t as talentless as I thought and that art is a skill that can be learned.


Right Edge Art was established in 2011 in Lyttelton, Centurion, because of my desire to teach art basics to people who fear making art because they think they don’t have the talent – people like me. For the past 8 years I have used Betty Edwards and others’ methods to teach art basics to pre-teens, teens and adults with great success.


Right Edge Art is a friendly, non-judgemental environment where people who struggle with art can come for structured, but flexible non-formal art courses. My students walk away with a solid knowledge and experience of art fundamentals, a feeling of accomplishment and new found confidence.


Right Edge Art has plenty of safe parking behind a closed gate. My art courses are based on a non-formal curriculum I have developed over the years, including Art Basics for Beginners and 6 Week Drawing for Beginners. My art classes are kept small for your benefit and my own sanity. You can start when you feel ready, choose a class time that suits your schedule and arrange for a different class time should you miss a class.

If you are not up for art courses, maybe you are interested in buying demonstrated instructional art e-books and learning  in the comfort of your own home.


I recently added some easy Wine and Art Workshops catering for adults who have no interest in art, but want to relax and have fun every now and then.
