I am sure your child will enjoy the relaxed, friendly and encouraging atmosphere of art lessons with me at the Society. I teach Watercolour, Acrylic and Drawing techniques. Classes are small, the children are aged from 8-17 and range in ability from beginner to advanced. My aim is to show them the techniques, tools, and tricks to unleash their creativity, develop their drawing and/or painting skills and find their own style. They do not need to have previous experience in painting or drawing, they will learn as they go. They are required to bring their own equipment and I will provide a comprehensive list in the first week.

Classes are held between 4-6pm on Wednesday, Thursday or Fridays during school terms and are based on a 10 week term. It is also a requirement of the Nepean Art Society that the children become members at a once per year cost of $30 per student.

NOTE: Margaret's classes are compliant with child safe procedures and Margaret has completed all the credentials under the "Working with Children" requirements. She is also fully insured. 

There are limited places available so please contact me for information regarding fees and class availability on

See Joe's gallery: Gallery of Joe Cartwright

Joe Cartwright has been painting with watercolours since 1998 and professionally since 2004. He paints in a fluid and spontaneous manner, which allows him to capture the mood and atmosphere of his subject with a style that encourages the viewer to involve one’s self with his work.
He has exhibited at major and regional art shows for over 14 years at which he has sold over 300 paintings and received many first prizes and other awards. One of these was the $3000 first prize for watercolour at the John Copes Watercolour Exhibition (2009).

Joe is the author of Mastering Watercolors – A Practical Guide which is available for purchase as a paperback and ebook from

He is a member of the Nepean Art Society, at which he runs weekly watercolour classes, and the Macquarie Towns Art Society.

He has two websites: – his demonstration and support site for his students; and which is his gallery website.

Joe can be contacted on 02 9833 1772 or through his websites.

Born in Queensland, Margaret grew up with the colours of the outback and the rainforest which are reflected in her works. She gained a love of the Australian bush from her childhood family camping holidays.

She studied acrylic and oil painting under Maree Sproats at Dural Art Studios, and plein air painting from Kasey Sealy and John Wilson.  Margaret also learnt watercolour and pen and wash with Joe Cartwright at Penrith.  Her main influence though was her mother, Gwen Chalmers, who was a passionate painter of over 30 years.

She is also tutoring at Springwood Community Arts Centre where her pen and wash classes are proving very popular.

Alice Dardaneliotis

Alice has had a love of arts since childhood. She proceeded to take art subjects in High School and entered art competitions receiving recognition.  Alice re-entered the art scene following work and family priorities.  She has taught in various community centres, directed the art facet for school fetes and tutored privately.  She has had many unique opportunities and a taught broad base of students.  She draws her  inspiration from the Australian landscape colours and has studied the styles of world renowned artists.  Light, colour and perspective coupled with the emotional response lead to an individual's unique work.  

Alice works with artists in all mediums and all levels of experience.
