Welcome to Fremantle Art Works
Why Fremantle Art Works?
PAUL JACOBS - Artist, Art Educator and Visual Arts Consultant
Many people interested in making art have often asked me,
"When will you be holding painting and drawing classes?"
Well, the time has come!
I have completed nearly 38 years of Art Education as well as Studio Practice, and now have the opportunity to share my knowledge and experiences with you in my studio!
I will teach you about painting and drawing, and guarantee that making art will be a fun and fascinating learning experience for you.
You will make art, take it home and feel very proud of
your own creations.
My classes comprise six students, so you will be given plenty of individual attention and opportunity to explore your own - often hidden - artistic talents.
Come join me on an adventure of visual learning.
Beginners' Art Classes
I have created for you two beginner art classes. These handcrafted classes will send you on a exciting journey of self discovery through the discipline of drawing and painting. Select your preference or enjoy both media. Drawing Class will be held on a Tuesday and the Painting Class on a Wednesday.
All classes are six weeks in length.

Finally, Paul is a born teacher - he won’t rest until his students have understood a new concept or demonstrated a new principle. He is driven by the desire to expand people’s horizons and, as such, he is prepared to go that “extra mile” to ensure that all his students, young or old, leave his courses with a high degree of satisfaction.
