Join us for an Introduction to painting and simple, but essential colour theory!


This session will set you on the road to successful painting, in all mediums.

We will use oil paint; a great favourite with artists throughout the ages and a good starting point for new painters, as it allows for revisions and changes, which is useful for both beginners and developing artists.

This is a fun, informative and active session for anyone who fancies the idea of painting but isn't sure where to begin.

All materials provided, alongside tea and coffee. You are welcome to bring lunch or purchase from our cafe partners Lily & Lime LD.
