About our Painting Classes

We've been providing inspirational, extraordinary and motivating oil painting classes since 2007. Led by Martin Kinnear our program includes proven foundation, structured intermediate and insightful advanced courses for students of all artistic tastes and ability.

We've been the destination for world class specialist studio tuition since 2007, and in 2020 we invested in a state of the art broadcast studio to bring our classes to artists online across the globe. 

All of our online painting courses are offered as live interactive classes and are always available on demand for 7 days after the course so you can maximise your learning.

Our in person studio courses are held in the grounds of a tranquil country estate at the Martin Kinnear Studio in beautiful North Yorkshire.


Classes are open to everyone but our members get advanced priority booking, promotional offers and special member pricing.

At the weekend I sold a painting that had been festering in my local pub for 3 years, whoop whoop.  

To celebrate my sale I enrolled for “Contemporary Glazing” and how thankful I am, Its like a ray of sunshine that has broken through the smog….. What a revelation in terms of technique that I or anyone can use in our paintings.  

So just saying folks, that “moment” is just around the corner, thank you Martin Kinnear, what an inspirational artist.
