What can students expect?

Oil painting can be confusing for the beginner painter. What colours should you buy? (There are so many!) When should you use paint thinner? How and when do you use painting mediums? All of these questions and many more will be answered in this course.
Your tutor has many years of experience teaching all levels of artists including beginners. He will make sure you come away with a solid understanding of everything you need to know to get started in oil painting.
The tutor will lead you through carefully selected paintings in a variety of subject matter including still life and landscapes. He will demonstrate every step of the way so that the teaching is as clear as can be. This will be a fun, interesting and friendly class.
