Contact course provider
About the Course
Experience the joy of paint for a full day in a stunning art studio in Lincoln. Guidance and tuition by professional artist Laura Andrew BA Hons. Laura has previously worked as an illustrator and now focuses on fine art and painting. Laura is passionate about the use of colour and you will be introduced to her colour palette, techniques and style, which is energetic and spontaneous.
Working from life, 'still life' is a wonderful means by which to explore and develop the fundamentals of drawing and painting. You'll learn about proportion, composition, colour and technique - and importantly how to keep that still life...'alive'!
You'll experience the joy of working with the highest quality art materials such as acrylics or oil paint in a genuine art studio. You'll be sensitively guided and encouraged by Laura who will enable your creative confidence to grow. This is a real artist experience!
The day starts with some dry medium drawing such as pencil and pastel. You will look at line, proportion, tone and composition. These initial exercises will allow you to 'loosen up' and prepare for your main painting, for which you may use any medium of your choice. Popular choices are acrylic, oil paint or acrylic ink.
This course is currently running on Saturday 25th August (SOLD OUT), and Saturday 15th September . If you would like to arrange a different date please contact Laura to arrange.

I had a lovely creative day at the oil & acrylic painting workshop - Laura was very welcoming, friendly and a brilliant tutor - she was always available to give guidance but allowing us freedom too. Laura had prepared various still life setups for us in her gorgeous studio and went through the great range of materials available to us. It was a treat to see Laura's art and to paint in such a calm & beautiful spot overlooking the park. Lunch was great and I really appreciated Laura providing vegan/gluten free options for me. I was travelling by train so Laura offered to post my painting which was very kind; she also followed the course up with useful feedback and details on materials. I came away with a painting I'm proud of but most importantly the course inspired me to get painting again! Thank you Laura!

The Painting Day was a great experience in the lovely art studio setting.
Laura's expertise and encouragement meant that everyone produced a painting and learnt a lot along the way.
I have been inspired to continue with art and drawing and would highly recommend the course.

So far, I have attended three of these oil painting days with Laura. I have encouraged friends, my daughter and my Mum to experience such days with Laura. My repeat attendance is probably sufficient testimony to the quality of the Oil Painting Day experience!
It is so much more that simply coming away with a painting. Laura crafts the day to build your confidence, a-tune your eye and flex those artist muscles you never knew you had.
Throughout the day, Laura shows her uncanny intuition by stepping in to support you just at the moments when you can't fathom how to make the right shade of green or capture the shape of a petal.
An added bonus is the camaraderie that develops ing the studio as we all do joyous battle with our respective canvases.
I heartily recommend everyone to join Laura Andrew in her Art Studio and discover your inner artist!

Laura demonstrated the basics of drawing and colour to give us the tools (and confidence) to progress to our painting. A lovely lunch was provided, all of this in Laura's beautiful home and artists studio.
