I just loved the oil painting class. The teacher was so good he enabled me to produce pieces that I never would have believed possible before the class or even half way through the first day.
The teacher was relaxed, encouraging, highly knowledgeable and able to communicate concepts and instructions, that are quite abstract, in a clear way. I came away with two paintings I love, but also new eyes, and a feeling of peace and contentment that is still with me days later. I can’t wait to sit down and paint again this weekend 🙂 October 2022
Will we use mineral turpentine on this course?
We won't be using any solvents in the class as these are both a health hazard and bad for the paint film.
