4-day workshop

Monday 15 – Thursday 18 July 2024, 10am-4pm 

A four-day workshop for those with little or no experience of working in oils. Learn to visually describe the fall of light over simple solid forms, first in monochrome and then in colour. Get to grips with colour mixing and learn how to translate three dimensions into two. Under the guidance of an experienced tutor, develop an excellent grounding for further exploration in oils. 

Please wear clothes and shoes suitable for a studio environment, and bring any of your own brushes if you have them. You will also need to consider how you will take work home with you on the last day, bearing in mind some work may still be wet - plastic bags are a good option.
