Sundays 11am-5pm , 13, 20, 27 February 2022
£125.00
This course will provide an opportunity to explore landscape in paint. Through a series of quick experimental pieces and more finished works, this landscape painting course will walk you through the process of developing your own unique visual response to the landscape.

Suitable for complete beginners who are new to oil painting as well as those with more experience looking to develop their skills.

Programme:

The course will cover a range of things including gathering your own reference material, testing out ideas and ultimately walking away at the end of the 3 weeks with a painting you would be happy to hang on your wall. Although centred around oil painting, the course will involve a variety of media, including charcoal and acrylic paint.

The classes will include a combination of presentations to the group, demonstrations and individual tuition. Suitable for beginners and more experienced artists who wish to develop their skills.
