- Have you always wanted to try your hand at painting?
- Perhaps you have been teaching yourself to paint, but are not sure what to do next?
- Maybe you would just like to join a group to paint and meet other like-minded people?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, then this might be the class for you!
Each week, Leslie will offer advice and gentle encouragement to help you realise your creative goals. Bring your paints, brushes and surface to paint on.
The kettle will be on for a cuppa and a biscuit!
Cost: $350 for 8 weeks
$50/week casual. (Please let me know you are coming so I can have a work station ready for you.)
The Doggy Drawing Day proved to be a great success with artists of all ages taking advantage of the opportunity to draw from the 4-legged life models. The gallery was packed, and there were so many wonderful drawings! And the models behaved beautifully too!
Hunter Animal Rescue benefited from the generous donations of food, toys and cash.
Hopefully we can do it again one day!
This new commissioned work by gallery director, Leslie Duffin, was delivered to its delighted owners recently and will grace their beautiful home in Belmont.
If you can’t find the right artwork for your space, Finite Gallery is happy to organise a commission.
Come in to the gallery to discuss your requirements. Several of the gallery artists are happy to take on commissions so that you can get just the right piece for your home or office.

During the weekly art classes the children are introduced to a variety of media and techniques, both 2D and 3D. By providing them with knowledge of materials and techniques, they are more able to make choices in ways to express their own creative ideas.
The language of art is also introduced to enable the children to convey their thoughts and feelings about their own work and the work of others.
Tuesdays: 4 – 5.30pm
Wednesdays: 4 – 5.30pm
Classes are limited to 10 students.
Cost: $180 / 10 week term. All materials are supplied.
Did you Know that Finite Gallery also holds Arty Parties for all ages?
Not Arty? No worries! You will be given gentle tuition by an experienced artist so that everyone goes home with a result.
We provide all the art materials – you bring along your chosen food and beverages and a sense of adventure.
A great way to celebrate a Hen’s Night, Birthday, Retirement, or just fun get-together with friends or work colleagues.
Call Leslie to discuss your requirements.
