Corné van Eck

Corné van Eck studied Art (BA Ed Art) at The University of Pretoria from 1982 - 1986. She commenced her teaching career at Gobabis and then moved to Windhoek where she also taught art. She started teaching art in Pretoria in 1989 on High School level for several years. She opened her own Art Studio - The GABLES Art Studio - in 1994 in Colbyn. She presently instructs children and adults in drawing and painting. She usually starts with techniques in drawing media, such as pencil, charcoal, pen and ink and oil pastels. The painting media includes watercolour, acrylics and oil paints. She believes in the creative potential of every human being, as well as in the strong therapeutic value of art lessons. The students start as beginners and they end up exhibiting their work at the annual art exhibition at the studio after a year.
She attempts to focus on the development of each student's own style and unique, individual working method. Many of her students sell their work on a regular basis. She also has advanced classes for artist who want to develop further.
Corné also hosts two workshops a year outside of Pretoria, where the students get the chance to paint mixed media landscapes. This year they intend to paint at Paternoster and Dullstroom over long weekends. It promises to be a lot of fun! Phone: 083 651 7830 or email: cornevaneck@gmail.com
