Painting Classes

Painting allows the artist to vividly capture the colour and light of the world. Painting with oil, acrylic or water colour can be a challenge to anyone that is starting out.

Most of this frustration lies with not understanding how to work with the medium. Which brushes do you use?, How to you apply the paint?¬†Blending!, how’s that done? We’ll explain everything, from the most basic level to advanced techniques.¬†

Instead of giving you the standard art school line of “just be free and express yourself”, we give practical advice on how to do things effectively so that the process of creating a picture becomes less of a struggle.

Spend some time learning technique, and you’ll be amazed at how much your work improves.
