As founder of ARTCLASSCO, Jacqui Stockdale draws from her extensive visual arts practice to inform her teaching and individual mentoring. The 'mini art school' offers a range of short courses, workshops and masterclasses the heart of Melbourne‚Äôs art scene in Brunswick St, Fitzroy.

The focus is on the nuts and bolts of art making; painting, drawing, collage, mentoring, studio practice and life painting.  Regular classes take place in a cosy traditional art studio and attract students of all ages and levels. Satisfied students return over and over again and some endeavour to pursue representation in commercial galleries or exhibit on their own.
