Art & Sip

Mackenzie Art Classes and Art & Sip were founded by James Mackenzie who is a professional artist and an experienced qualified Art teacher.


In the acrylic painting classes that James teaches everyone attending creates their own version of one of his original paintings. He guides the class stage by stage and encourages people to be inspired by the chosen artwork instead of copying. This way all the paintings progress in different ways and individual styles emerge. By the end of each session a range of unique paintings are created to take home the same evening.


James has recruited a team of experienced tutors to now offer 4 different classes to choose from - Acrylic Painting, Candle Making, Paper Craft and Floristry.


We look forward to the physical classes being back, for now we are running Art & Sip sessions on Zoom and we have also created art tutorials on YouTube.


When our physical classes are back up and running again they will be available for all ages across our various locations around Essex.
