The Company

Who we are

Creative Image Art Painting Studios is a South African born franchise with over 30 years of successful trading in South Africa and Mauritius.  The founders took fine art principles and created a fine art painting programme aimed at various walks of life, age groups and gender.  The program is designed for the woman or man on the street who is looking for a creative outlet and escape from everyday life.  Art as a therapy is effective in helping people manage stress, anxiety and trauma and our art studios will create a safe and calming environment where people can come and release their stress while making friends in the process and creating beautiful pieces of art.


The fine art painting program is a step-by-step process that starts off teaching students the foundation skills and gradually builds up their skill set, getting harder and harder as they progress.   There is a strong emphasis on technique and brush control as well as the use of colour.


The program is based on weekly painting lessons with achievable goals that help to build the students confidence and ultimately to obtain a level of excellence in art.  Art does not only have to be done on canvas to be called art, which is why students are taught to paint on various material items such as tablecloths, ceramics, bags, cushions, and wooden items. The use of various items instead of just canvas adds variety for the students and maintains their interest.
