Balham @ The Bedford


London based artist Tom Cox will be leading beginner/ intermediate level painting classes, covering the basics of form, colour, distance, and perspective, whilst exploring avante-garde movements and techniques.

In the spacious setting of The Bedford Pub, just a minutes walk from Balham underground, these classes are a great way to unwind after work and challenge the preconceptions we have of the visual world around us.

For only £20 per 2 hour session, and all the materials provided. These drop in classes are an affordable, fun and social evening. Plus, you leave with your very own masterpiece!

They run from 7 -9pm every Thursday. To see the next upcoming class join our MeetUp group London Art Sessions or check our events calendar!

“I had a fab time last night - was very impressed with my masterpiece that I took home! Tom is very knowledgeable and supportive but also knows exactly how much room to give to allow his students to have fun, and for their creativity to blossom! I learnt a lot and feel a lot more confident about painting in the future. Thanks Tom.”

“ I really enjoyed yesterday's class. I've always struggled to start new things that I don't have a natural pizzaz for but Tom's gentle style of teaching is relaxing and affirming and I definitely learned some really useful techniques and came out with an end result, which was much better than expected. Thanks Tom, and see you next time!”


“Great fun thanks Tom really enjoyed it and lovely group and space looking forward to more :-)”
