Winsor & Newton Art Classes

Winsor & Newton Art Classes offer an introduction to the three main types of Fine Art paint media; Oil, Watercolour and Acrylic. These classes are the opportunity to explore colour using the finest Winsor & Newton artist grade materials. Winsor & Newton believe in inspiring every artist in the world and under expert guidance students will uncover the unique characteristics of colour, learn the different qualities of paint and find out how best to apply and combine them.

Winsor & Newton Art Classes offer tuition at three distinct levels. Introductory courses explore the tools, materials and surfaces specific to each type of paint. Intermediate courses offer instruction in specialised painting techniques and training in how to apply them. Advanced courses encourage students to apply, combine and experiment with these techniques to create personalised outcomes. Each level is supplied by a specific Winsor & Newton paint range.
