ART101 studio is Brisbane’s most relaxed and informal creative environment for absolute beginners to explore painting in acrylics.

Discover how to see like an artist and translate that to canvas. Everyone has creative potential that is easily unlocked with the right guide.

With no set topics, you choose what project you would like to work on in the studio. From contemporary techniques, including texture and collage, through to more traditional painting techniques with brush and palette knife work, these classes offer a great deal of flexibility and best of all, choice.

Your tutor works with you as an individual – one size does not fit all.

ART101’s small class size means you can work on a project that really rocks your socks and stay confident while we demystify the art making process. We have a maximum of 8 students per studio session.

When you attend ART101’s painting classes do bring along a ‘wishlist’:
* Samples of other artists’ work that appeal to you so we can see the style you are drawn to.
* A variety of photographs as reference so that you work on a project tailored to your interests.

Studio sessions include regular demonstrations, practical application tips and simplified theory that is relevant to your project.

Mel is not only a very talented artist in the use of multiple techniques and media, she is also a very kind patient person who happens to be a fantastic teacher for young ones, adults and older people wanting to ‘hobby paint’ and for all people who wish to upskill and exhibit to sell their paintings and artworks.

I have spent many hours at Mel’s Studio which has a very relaxed atmosphere and is just a pleasure to be there. I love going to my lessons and just hate to miss a class.


“I have been painting with Mel since 2013 and have been fortunate enough to try all different mediums having started with acrylics. I have completed many paintings in different styles and have incorporated house paints with bottle drips. It never ceases to amaze me how Mel can see my inspiration pics and help me to bring it to life in different ways” – Laura (started 2013 – current student)
