All new students are invited for a trial class.

We will look at landscapes by Turner, Constable and the Impressionists as well as surreal and abstracted landscapes,

Through various assignments, drawing from observation and visual research, we will explore and create our own imaginative landscapes. 

This is an experimental Painting Class that may lead you to the discovery of new horizons.

...Just wanted to say how much I am enjoying Melissa’s art class - it is really getting me thinking about art and trying new techniques.  I love being challenged with the different ideas and she is always available to help, whilst allowing us to explore our own style.  It’s lovely that she is an exhibiting artist too.  I learn so much in each lesson; it’s great, just what I wanted.

Melissa Kime M.A.


Melissa Kime is a figurative artist who makes dream like expressive works, her paintings are set to a Roman Catholic backdrop they are cloaked in Catholic Folklore and magick. The women in her work perform rituals centred upon healing, jinx removal or the prevention of bad things happening-fertility spells and protection but mostly, these women are trying to connect together and survive, through the linking of menstrual blood, plaited hair and autobiographical experiences. 

Melissa graduated with a BA Fine Art in 2011 from Falmouth University, with a postgraduate diploma in drawing from the Royal Drawing School in 2012 and with an MA in Painting from the Royal College of Art in 2015.


She has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad in both solo and group shows, she has won numerous prizes for both drawing and painting and her work is in many private collections.
