Studio Toru Logo Final

From Zero to Hero.  Within a couple of hours you can go from being a total beginner to completing two abstract artworks.  More experienced artists can learn more about this wonderful material - coldwax and oil. 


If you just want to try something new and have a fun get together in a non-judgmental environment, come along to Studio Toru, Eastbourne or to Khandallah, Wellington and I'm there with absolutely everything you need.   Eastbourne is a lovely venue with some great local cafes, and the beach within 5 mins walk  for when we have a break.


If you are planning your next Team Building/Strategic Away Day - you can come over to Studio Toru - or I'll come to your event.

"If you are looking for a great weekend or mid-week activity, then I highly recommend an Artopia session with Beth. I really enjoyed reconnecting with my "creative" side and Beth was a very knowledgeable and attentive art teacher. She is patient and takes the time to demonstrate techniques in a way that is easy to understand. Most importantly, Beth makes sure you have lots of fun!  I learned that there are no mistakes in art.  You allow your piece to unfold and take a life of its own.  I was very chuffed with my final works and felt a great sense of accomplishment!"
