Isn’t oil painting amazing? Ever wondered how the Old Masters achieved their techniques? How does it look so ‘real’?

If you love art, if you’re curious, if you’ve painted before or never touched a brush, then join us on this fun and insightful course on oil painting.

It’s the perfect course to learn oil painting in a structured and relaxed manner. With only a handful of students, you’ll get plenty of individual help to develop your painting skills. And it’s a chance to make new friends too.

The course is aimed to develop artistic confidence and enjoyment of painting, and to give you the correct and traditional foundation with which to pursue oil painting.
