Our Adult Education programme is run by teachers and facilitators independent of the Peter Clarke Art Centre.
The teachers/facilitators rent the rooms from the Art Centre and we accept their application to run courses from this venue, provided that the courses fit into a broad Arts category.
Some courses are experimental because we like to give new teachers/facilitators a chance to add variety to our courses.
Please note the following applies to participants in this programme:
- All photocopies are R1.00 per page (A4)
- Your course teacher/facilitator is responsible for providing refreshments during courses.
- Please do not use the tea/coffee belonging to PCAC.
- Please do not use equipment like paper, paints, brushes, scissors, etc. in the classrooms, as these are used by our children and come off the PCAC budget.
- We unfortunately do not have storage facilities for work in progress.
- Please recycle all paper and card, but other rubbish is to be thrown into a normal bin.
- PLEASE LEAVE THE CLASSROOM AS YOU FOUND IT.
We hope you will benefit from the courses offered by our Adult Education programmes.
Please view the workshops available and contact the course organiser to secure your place.

- The goal is that of further developing your visual and artistic skill through engaging with composition, form, colour, general aesthetics and all aspects of painting technique.
- Each student is guided according to his/her own personal circumstances (how much additional time you have to paint, etc.) so there is no single outcome set for the group as a whole.

- Since completing his MFA Degree at the Michaelis School of Fine Art in 1984, Vivian held lecturing appointments in Painting and Drawing at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University, Port Elizabeth and then at Stellenbosch University.
- Having taught Painting to BA Fine Art and Masters Students, he also served as an external examiner at various South African art institutions for many years.
- Past students include Marlene Steyn, Gina Heyer, Claire Menck, Greg Schultz, Oliver Chennells, Sanell Aggenbach, Francois Smit, Liza Grobler, Amy Ellenbogen and many others who have established successful professional careers in the art world.
- In 2012 he left full-time academia and decided to teach much more selectively in order to dedicate more time to his own painting.
