Description

Designed to encourage confidence and to inspire, this course is for students who have already completed our Beginners Course: Level 1 OR students with previous oil painting experience and competency with colour mixing and representational painting. If you are not sure please contact us before booking!

Attendees will be guided through a series of painting exercises that explore the genres of Portraiture, Landscape and Abstraction. The first three classes in the course of four will teach students the fundamental rules of each genre whilst reinforcing sophisticated use of colour and palette control.

Students will focus on the importance of preparation, observation, creative problem-solving and patience whist working in a supportive and friendly environment.

Each class involves sophisticated colour mixing, giving students confidence with the manipulation of their palette to match any colour, in order to create mood and cohesion.

In the final class students will be able to incorporate these skills to generate their own artwork within their chosen genre.

The course will also include discussion about safe studio practice at home and working independently. Students should already have a basic painting kit, other colours required will be provided for the duration of the course.

* Please note that we are unable to offer 'make-up' classes for this special price 4-week course due to limited class places. Please read our T&C below!

Our 4 - week beginners courses in oil painting, drawing and watercolours are designed for the complete beginner, taking you through a series of exercises and building your skills week by week. Students may choose to continue to our Beginners Courses Level 2 in both painting and drawing..  Ongoing students are supported to help develop their own direction, with optional exercises offered to expand on skills and knowledge, and our Atelier students are assisted in taking it to the next level in professional practice.

Evening classes include wine and refreshments, and morning classes include tea, coffee and cakes. Classes run for 3 hours and basic equipment is available for student use at the studio, including easels, palettes and drawing boards. We believe in safe studio-practice and provide low-toxic, low-odour materials for student use, as well as high-quality clean-up materials for brushes and hands. We also have storage facilities if you wish to keep your materials at the studio.

Each student works at their own pace and receives one-on-one attention, and all students are invited to exhibit in our annual end of year exhibition, a fun opportunity to show family and friends what you’ve been doing!

Wonderful classes. I was challenged so much and learnt so much because of this. I loved that everyone was at different levels but all still learning about oils. The space is beautiful and filled with light. I found a park easily outside each time (evening classes, paid park). I will be back for more asap! Thank you 🙏
