Overview of this Art Class

We will begin with a  few colours, brushes, and tools. You'll be surprised what you can achieve in a short time with some basic materials.

Over eight weeks you will learn the basic painting skills of colour mixing, tonal relationships, good design, paint application, 'drawing' with paint, and painting the light.

Our approach will incorporate subject matter ranging from still life and landscapes. These subjects provide an ideal way for your tutor to help you learn how a professional artist uses oil paints to incorporate colour and light into their artworks.
