Introduction to oil painting

If you’ve always wanted to try oil painting, have been frustrated by how your paintings turn out or have a set of oil paints but don’t know your turpentine from your linseed oil, then this is the course for you.  The aim of the course is to provide you with a basic understanding of how to use oil paints with two different techniques you can use in your own time as you develop your painting skills. The introduction to oil painting course is taught through a practical day of oil painting, with demonstrations and tuition. The course will include:

  • An introduction to oil painting and the materials that we will be using during the day
  • Painting a picture using a direct method with a demonstration to illustrate the technique being used
  • Painting a picture using a colour beginning with a demonstration to illustrate the technique being used
  • A review of the days paintings and notes to take away

The course will have no more than 8 pupils to ensure plenty of time for one to one tuition and all materials are included in the price. Tea and coffee are provided as is a simple lunch (e.g. soup and a roll) or you are welcome to bring your own food.

The Introduction to oil painting course costs £65 and runs on the dates shown below. If you would like to book a place please contact Paul on 01380 860340 or use the ‘contact us’ button below and let us know when you would like to join us.
