Video Based Art Courses for Beginners

Learn to draw and paint when it suits you.

Run these courses at a time to suit you, lifetime access once purchased.

How do the video courses work?

We have several art experiences to choose from. Once you have paid for your chosen course you will gain access to pdf’s and videos which will help you create your artwork.

Do I have to complete the course in one day?

Because the videos are online, you can choose whether to complete your painting in one day, or spread it over a longer time frame.

What does each course include?

Each course includes at least 4 pdfs and 4 videos. The pdfs include all the materials information you will need, plus a bonus template for practice and optional additional information for printing your finished artwork onto products. The videos are split into manageable sections so that you can easily plan your art sessions around your day/week.

Who are your courses tailored for?

These workshops are tailored for adults, but children aged 8 upwards can also enjoy them.

What level of experience do I need?

Absolutely no experience is required and that's why this platform is a little bit magical. You'll create beautiful, finished drawings and paintings in each workshop even if you've never tried art before.

What if I don't like the course?

All of our workshops come with a 30 day money back guarantee. We offer a free trial so that you can sign up and try it out with no obligation.

Meet your Art Coach: Gabrielle Vickery

Gabrielle Vickery is the founder of The Arthouse Oasis. She has always been artistic, enjoying her school years focusing on 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 and art.

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.

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.

I would heartily recommend these workshops for all levels of expertise, from beginner to more proficient artist as you can take away as much or as little from the class as you like. Thanks to The Arthouse Oasis for lowering my blood pressure for a few hours! Xx

After Gaby’s wonderful Robin painting workshop, I really felt inspired. I learned so many valuable techniques, but most of all Gabby gave me the confidence to continue and I’m now enjoying a relaxing, fulfilling hobby. I have a long way to go, but I’m enjoying every moment. Thank you!!

Video Course 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 course you choose. Currently prices are as follows:

Plain Pencil Drawings £15

Coloured Pencil Drawings £20

Watercolour Paintings £30

We would love you to try our video courses for yourself, so our ‘Draw a Rose using Pencils Course’ is completely free. Try it for yourself here.

Materials vary depending on which subject you choose. We offer links to materials via Amazon in each workshop and always choose the most cost effective options we can find. More info here.

Absolutely! We are very careful to plan each course 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 too fast so you should have no problem following along. You can even slow it down or speed it up using Youtube’s own settings.

Our studio is in Great Hallingbury about ten minutes from Bishop’s Stortford in Hertfordshire.
