This course will help you develop painting skills by looking at painting in art history. We shall explore the artists’ methods, approaches and the context in which they produced their work. Hopefully, this will encourage students to look at art in different ways as well as developing their own skills. It will be structured around demonstrations, set work and students’ own projects. A variety of techniques and subjects will be covered.

Beginners and improvers

If you wish to book a place on one or more course(s), please email, telephone or write to us to check there is a space available. Payment details will be given after which we shall hold your place for 3 days to allow you time to pay either by BACS or by cheque. For further details please see Booking.

These will include demonstrations by tutor; individual practice by student; instruction on a group and individual basis; question and answer, etc. If circumstances dictate where we are unable to meet face-to-face, a detailed handout will be emailed or posted to you, so you can work on it at home.
