The focus will be on learning a range of painting techniques and how to apply them using the correct tools and materials. Students will develop core painting skills such as understanding tone, line and colour. These courses are suitable for those with some experience of painting or students who have completed an Introductory class. By the end of this course students will be able to produce independent paintings using a broad range of techniques. Classes will be run by a professional artist and restricted to 16 or less. We will be using the Winsor & Newton Artist's Oil Colour paint range. Progression is available onto advanced classes.
You will need to have paid in full before the first session of your class. Your place is not guaranteed until we have received full payment. Please book early in order to guarantee your place on the course.
