leads you through a series of dynamic art processes
Be surrounded by all the right stuff to help you achieve your artistic dreams.
Sometimes our spirit for learning and creativity needs a home, and Paris for now, is just too far away! The Muse is no mere classroom; it is an artist's reflective working space, with all the traditional and modern tools to create your own brand of art.
Taking all that's inventive about an artist studio and creating a group friendly workshop space is the brainchild, and outcome of John Ellis' long career in the creative arts.
John's art career covers teaching and professional production of art, design, media and leading cultural tours and events here and overseas. He has an uncanny ability to see how all 'The Arts' (visual, performing, architecture, media, music connect).
The Italian's call it concetto - meaning and purpose or for John, it's telling big stories in an inspired way. No matter what you think of your skill base, everyone is capable of making their own creative mark.
Wine and a Fellini film in the studio are always on the cards!
John's well-loved, highly inventive art classes are all about time;
• Time to get to know the artist environment,
• Time to decide what really interests you,
• Time to develop your favourite medium
• Time to develop new methods, skills and passions.
