Expressive Painting in Oils or Acrylics

About the Course
A relaxed and inspirational painting class designed to help beginners to get started with painting, whilst also supporting more advanced painters develop their skills and techniques. This is a bespoke service geared to the individuals, using a variety of approaches with oil and acrylic paints. During these classes, Liz….an experienced and enthusiastic tutor will take you through exercises and a series of sketchbook studies to develop your own artistic language and document your learning and serve as inspiration for future development. You will come away from each course with a finished painting on canvas and a lively sketchbook full of ideas. Support is offered via email in between sessions.
Having graduated with a BA in Fine Art, and a PGCE I have continued working in the arts as a practicing artist, and tutor. I taught A level Art and design and life drawing for 30 years, and now run workshops and teach private classes. I am a painter, but love to experiment with textiles too. I use a range of media and have a wide experience of using different materials. Experimentation with media has always been important both to my own practice and the way that I teach art.
This is a quote from one of the participants..... ‘Oh is Liz Goulding good. She is a talented painter, a great teacher and extremely generous with her knowledge. She is really well organised with equipment and source materials and enthused and inspired us all brilliantly. She is unpretentious, direct, modest and has a great sense of humour.’

Have been meaning to start painting for some time now and Liz has provided me with the confidence and inspiration to make that first step. Her approach to teaching allows you to
enjoy the creative process but also provides you with a sense of achievement.
I now want to paint regularly and enjoy each new challenge that the course offers.

I first attended a landscape workshop with Liz at Ruffed Art Society. It was the first time had ever painted on such a large canvas and in such a free way. I enjoyed it so much I started going to the course on a Tuesday morning in Lowdham.
Liz gives you just the right amount of support and guidance without being in any way dogmatic. She has given me the tools to be able to start to develop my own style and not be overwhelmed by starting the blank page! I have now done two paintings, one still life which is now on the bedroom wall - first time ever I have been able to do that. The second is an ongoing landscape which is developing nicely and I am really enjoying it.
Would definitely recommend for whatever level of ability or style.
