Oil Painting - All abilities
Have you ever tried oils and not got on with them, or been at a loss at to where to start? Well, this course will give you the foundations and understanding needed to get the best from oil paints and develop your skills. We’ll cover the basics of materials and equipment, and also look at a range of different techniques and methods of working. There will be lots of demonstrations and practical tasks for you to have a go at, and as you develop you will have the opportunity to try out your own ideas and experiments. There will also be lots of opportunities for you to share your work and get feedback during the class. Prosp User 3

PLEASE NOTE: some people can be sensitive to oil paints and solvents, so please check that you are ok to use them before you start the course.
