About Art Class Norfolk

Professional artist and experienced teacher Claire Frances Smith offers relaxed and friendly classes in oils and acrylics at The Art Room in Dereham.

Claire is a professional exhibiting artist who has been teaching for many years. She supplies galleries across the Uk and has been published by one of the country's leading publishers. She produces medium to large scale paintings of sea and sky scapes, landscapes, water scenes and figures. She supplies private and corporate clients and regularly exhibits. Claire recently opened her own art school in Norfolk which she also uses as a studio.

Claire's students describe her as inspirational, patient and knowledgable.

Claire has an "Old School" approach to teaching. She believes that painting is open to anyone of any age and ability not just those who are naturally gifted.
She delivers a carefully designed step by step program that starts with the core basics of paint handling then colour mixing, good drawing skills, working with tones, creating mood and atmosphere working towards eventually exhibiting work.
Many of Claire's students who started from scratch now exhibit their work and achieve sales. Students are supported in their learning with achievable projects and opportunities to take part in art related outings, get togethers and shows.
The teaching program is delivered in a light-hearted and relaxed environment with students encouraged at every stage.


All aspects of oil, acrylic and watercolour painting exciting mediums will be covered and students are encouraged to work at their own pace.

No need to worry if you have never painted before as absolute beginners are always welcome.

More experienced painters will enjoy a place to meet fellow artists and be inspired by new projects and have the chance to take part in exhibitions.


Beginners and improvers very welcome.

Friendly supportive tuition from professional artist.
