Come and discover just how user friendly oil paint is and how very simple and straight forward it is to use! Oil paint has many advantages over other painting media which is why it has stood the test of time and this class will demonstrate basic techniques that will allow you to realise and appreciate its possibilities and have fun while you're doing it. We'll begin by working monochromatically to give you time to get a sense of its qualities and for those who wish, move into some colour. This is a hands on class that won't load lot's of unnecessary 'rules' on you, but give you real freedom to understand how it works and build confidence to use it boldly!

Limited to 12 places

What to bring:

Pallette, A4 or A3 canvas panel or canvas pad, paint brushes, Paynes Grey (or black) & white oil paint (ideally 37ml tubes)
