Learn to paint


Learning to paint in oils can appear daunting at first but with a little guidance and application it becomes the most powerful and flexible of all media. Oil paint has a handful of simple and easy to follow rules, if you follow them you will feel that you’re cycling with the wind at your back on a summer’s day.

Our tutors all use oil paint as their primary medium, they’ll get you going with confidence in no time. You’ll find that each artist has a way of working that is personal to them, and a subject matter which they tend to work with. They will all introduce you to the universal skills we need as artists – proportion, colour, composition and so on.

Al of our courses are delivered through Zoom at this time. Students have found that working in their own space with input via Zoom is highly effective. They can build their own studio practice and focus on their work with no distractions but with the sense of shared purpose and community that Zoom can bring. The results have been fantastic.
