Oil painting - Drop in Session



Discover the unique qualities of oil painting in a creative and inspiring studio. (You will meet some of the monthly ongoing painting students. As a new student, you will join us in a place where artists of different abilities meet weekly to paint, natter and learn new techniques of painting.) NEW STUDENTS may join in at any stage by selecting the "Drop in Class". Their first class will be 3 hours so we have sufficient time start on your first painting. New students will be taught the basics of colour mixing, the theory of colour, tonal values and the basics of handling oil paints and painting techniques in their first class.
