Learn to paint

Learning to paint in oils can appear daunting at first. The thing about oil paint is that it has a handful of simple and easy to follow rules that if followed, will make you feel that you’re cycling with the wind at your back. Breaking the rules will give interesting results but maybe not the ones you wanted. 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 that they tend to work with. They will all introduce you to the universal skills we all 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.
