Meerendal Wine Farm Adult Art Classes


Do you ever wonder if you have a hidden talent that you have never had the chance to explore?

Local Durbanville artist, Leonie Brown of Life Art School, has started to change the lives of adults who were told they would never become artists.


One such story shared is that of Natasha Nel, once a law firm owner in Russia for 13 years and now a full time artist in Cape Town!  She credits her inspiring and fulfilling career change to Leonie.

“You do not need any experience in art” explains Leonie Brown of Life Art School. “In fact, it is better if you do not have any experience at all. I am so proud of the work that my students are producing!”

Leonie’s adult art classes are hosted by Meerendal Wine Farm on the back roads of Durbanville. Attending just one, 3 hour art class a week for a year will teach you everything you need to know about art technique. You will be creating beautiful masterpieces in no time.

What’s more is that Meerendal now display art in their wine tasting room which is not limited to famous artists. Your artwork could be on display!

She has studied, counselled and treated people, using a variety of healing disciplines for over 20 years during which time, she has gained some profound insights into the human psyche.
