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.
This courses will teach you the fundamentals of painting, building layers, composition and colour mixing. Working with creative still life props, you will learn step by step how to create an oil painting. This course is both fun and informative, you will be encouraged to develop your own style and gain confidence in experimenting with the medium further.
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.
