Meet your Art Coach: Gabrielle Vickery
Gabrielle Vickery is the founder of The Arthouse Oasis. She has always been artistic, enjoying her school years soaking up her art lessons. Gabrielle went onto College and then University, where she achieved a BA (Hons) in Audio Visual design. Her speciality was animation, but after graduating she gravitated towards design.
She has been a graphic designer and illustrator ever since, and for the last 25 years has built up her Graphic Design business with her business partner Ralph Watson.
Then two things happened to change her direction in life. The first was that she was diagnosed with breast cancer during a routine mammogram. The second was that her daughter was being bullied at school. These two hugely stressful experiences caused a massive shift in Gabrielle’s perspective on life.
Whilst recovering from major surgery and trying to find a new school for her daughter she became more and more drawn to art as a way to increase her wellbeing. She soon came to realise that she could share the many benefits of art with others. And there the lightbulb flashed and her decision to open up an art studio was formed. The next day she created her brand and The Arthouse Oasis was born.

Online Platform Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few answers to our most common questions.
Yes of course, we love it when groups get involved :-). If you have purchased a course and you are all in the same household then you can all create art together, just play the videos at the same time as each other.
We do request that if you are doing the courses from separate locations then you pay separately.
Costs vary depending on which workshop you choose. Currently prices are as follows:
Pencil Drawing Workshops £15
Coloured Pencil Drawing Workshops £20
Watercolour Painting Workshosp £30
We would love you to try our Online Art Platform for yourself, so our ‘Draw a Rose using Pencils Workshop’ is completely free. Try it for yourself here.
Yes of course. Materials vary depending on which workshop you choose. We offer links to materials via Amazon in each workshop and always choose the most cost effective options we can find. We don’t want cost to be a barrier to getting involved.
Absolutely! We are very careful to plan each workshop for the absolute beginner. We use the most basic of materials and break each step down into it’s simplest form. You can pause each video if the instructions seem to fast so you should have no problem following along.
Our studio is in Great Hallingbury about ten minutes from Bishop’s Stortford in Hertfordshire. Exact details will be given when booking.
They are roughly 3.5 hours with breaks in the middle. If anyone needs to stretch their legs, answer the door or get a cuppa at any point during the workshop that’s totally fine. Comfort is key!
We can tailor private events to be any length.
Yes you can. This is a lovely mindful experience for the solo artist.
We can tailor the session for you, prices vary depending on requirements.
We are currently only offering online workshops and courses but we intend to open in the near future.
Firstly you need to have a look at the workshops at the top of this page, and book your preferred one.
If it is a free Facebook event then just head over to the Events Tab on The Facebook and follow the instructions (ie turn up to Facebook with the correct materials at the right date/time and get ready to get arty).
Once you have paid for the workshop you will receive confirmation and a Zoom link via email.
You will need to download Zoom in advance of the workshop and make sure that you test it to get comfortable with how it works.
You will also need to get hold of your materials well in advance of the class.
Some workshops may require you to do some initial drawing work before the class, all details will be in your email.
On the day of the workshop at the allotted time you click the link and you will be invited into the Zoom Room.
We then all draw/paint together at the same time, and you can see our artwork close up so you just follow along with what we do to create a beautiful piece of art.
Zoom is a very safe, industry standard Video platform and is very safe to download. You can download it from here:
You’ll probably just need to download the first link in the list.
Yes we do. We provide full private workshops for the corporate sector, and we can also provide short ‘Art Break’ sessions (ie 10 or 20 minute packages) to break up the day. These can be fully tailored to suit your requirements.
We are now running Private Paint Pouring Experiences.
2 canvases and all materials provided.
Curing time 1 month.
Whilst primarily we tailor our workshops for older children and adults, we find that children aged 7+ are able to follow along loosely and have produced some lovely works of art.
