Our friendly, inspiring art classes are held at Romiley Cricket Club on Thursdays. They provide a relaxed place to learn form an experienced art teacher. There is a 3 hour morning and afternoon class to fit in with your schedule.
All lessons will be fully compliant with Covid 19 guidelines, including social distancing and thorough hygiene measures in place at all times.
You will receive expert tuition and guidance from our tutor, allowing you to produce beautiful art using a variety of mediums over a 6 week period.
We start with pencil and charcoal drawing, setting the building blocks of skills for the course. We will then work with watercolours and acrylic paint. The principles of drawing and painting are progressively practiced with techniques and subjects to suit the needs and interests of the class. Classes are suitable for beginners & improvers. ColourWheel classes are an excellent opportunity to learn new skills, chat with friends & enjoy a sense of community.

I started this course last September with the intention of just doing a term. I had hoped I might be able to improve my drawing skills but I actually learnt so much more. I had never really done much painting but by Christmas had a selection of pictures that showed steady progress and had painted a portrait in acrylics that I was incredibly proud of. I had learnt about watercolour, mixing colours, composition, charcoal and negative space, to name but a few. The teaching is friendly and accessible and the class also learn a lot from one another. When lockdown happened, the organiser sent us online projects, set up a WhatsApp group, made zoom classes available and has just been incredible. In under a year I have made new friends, learnt new skills and have a range of art works that I am extremely proud of. I simply cannot recommend this course enough.
Response from ColourWheel Stockport:Thank you so much, Siobhan. your skills have progressed so much, and it's wonderful to have you on the course!
I started at Colourwheel having never done an art class in my life.....and I am hooked! Both class leader & class teacher are welcoming, encouraging & enthusiastic. Over the last 11 months we have had classes in pencil, charcoal, pastels, oil pastels, watercolour & acrylic. During lockdown classes continued via zoom, providing calm & creativity during the storm. Now we have returned to face to face teaching, great effort has been made to ensure that classes are safe yet still engaging & informative. I can't imagine life without my Colourwheel class.
Response from ColourWheel Stockport:That's lovely, Michelle - we can't imagine the classes without you either!! Seeing your artwork progress to such a high level is fantastic.
I joined the Colourwheel art class last September and have enjoyed every minute of it. With all the resources provided it couldn't be easier to attend
The tutor is excellent: empathetic and encouraging and the administrator puts her heart into making everyone welcome and comfortable.
I highly recommended this course.
Response from ColourWheel Stockport:Thank you so much, Maureen - it's such a pleasure to have you on the course.

Response from ColourWheel Stockport:Thank you Chris, I'm really glad that you enjoy the classes, and we love having you there!
