Learn to paint with oils and discover the versatility and attraction of painting with a more traditional medium. Oils make a good choice for a beginner as they dry slowly allowing you to sculpt with the paint and move the image around on the canvas. Painting the Nude is a challenging subject but deeply rewarding to master. There are no expectations in this class, everyone learns at there own level. So enjoy the experience and friendly atmosphere.

Throughout the year we will run different themes, exploring Oil painting from foundations, to painting like the Old masters, looking at abstraction, painting the nude, portraits and more. All the courses are 5 weeks and suited to beginners and each new theme helps to build your art technique and allow you to continue practising throughout the year.

These courses will teach you the fundamentals of painting, building layers and working with mediums. Working with creative still life props or life models. these courses are both fun and informative, you will be encouraged to develop your own style and gain confidence in experimenting with the medium further.
