You Can Learn To Draw & Paint

Treat yourself to private art classes with professional artist Crystal Electra. Designed for the faint of art, Crystal Electra has been inspiring students to discover their talent and celebrate their creativity for over 30 years.

Join Crystal at her private residence on Granville Island. Morning, afternoon and evening classes are available. You can purchase a package or pay as you go.  

Art classes make a great gift!

If you have ever wanted to learn to draw, but lacked the confidence to start, then this class is for you.

Your desire to learn how to paint - and enthusiasm - are all you need to learn how to paint. Start here.

Combine Journaling and artistic practice. We'll go on mini journeys and capture our adventures in word and colour. 

Increase your technical skills, fine tune your eye, develop a more sophisticated approach to your subject matter.

What Students Say

I loved drawing when I was a kid. I'd spend hours filling up my notebooks with doodles. I found Crystal and she has helped me totally develop my technique. And I love that we always break for tea. 


I always wanted to learn to paint watercolours but never had the time.  My fiance bought me this class and I'm SO GLAD she did. Thank you Crystal for making it possible! 


I cannot say enough about Crystal. She totally transformed not just how I express my creativity through my journals but how I see the world.  She is kind and funny and awesome.
