About Koala Courses

What - Koala Courses runs painting and drawing workshops periodically (a list of upcoming workshops can be view here) for young and mature adults. Alternatively, we also offer one to one private tuition in a public space. So if there are no workshops running, why not register your interest and we will contact with our next available programmes. We are able to offer flexible arrangements, so contact us today.

Where - We offer our services across Hertfordshire, inc. St Albans, Harpenden, Welwyn Garden City, Stevenage, Letchworth, Knebworth, Hertford and Hitchin.

About - Our workshops are generally small (8 or less). Private one to one tuition rates are £30 per hour* exluding the hire of a public space (*rates valid until April 2019; venue hire rates are typically range from £5 to £15 per hr). We are able to offer one hour one to one tutorial sessions for £35 per hour in Hitchin and Letchworth, dependent on availability. Please contact us for more information on group rates.

Age range - 16 years onward, as long as you are willing and enthusiastic.

What makes us unique - Aside from being passionate about what we teach, Koala Courses can offer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) learning opportunities, specifically between the sciences and the arts. So even if you undertake a masterclass in colour theory, there might be a little scientific element to it. We also can deliver innovative, project-based learning such as Arts Awards (Bronze & Silver) to learners up the age of 25 years, which are nationally recognised qualifications.

Payment - via PayPal.
