Painting Classes

Back in May, while I was doing Dorset Art Weeks, Several visitors asked me if I did painting workshops or classes, to which I replied 'No Way!"
My experience of teaching was limited to running craft activities for Brownies aged 7-10 so my confidence levels for teaching grown ups was low! I got thinking and chatting to some potential takers and felt that if I went small to start with and build from there, it might actually be fun!
So....I am happy to be offering a 6 week course for beginners starting in September!

The Classes will start WEDNESDAY 19th SEPTEMBER at 10am-12pm at my Studio just outside Lyme Regis

We will cover:
-An introduction to Acrylic Paint and Colour
-Mixing paint to get to know it
-Choosing and using brushes
-Coming up with ideas for a painting: Inspiration, work you admire, composition
( not as scary as it sounds! )
-Preparing a surface to paint on
-Having help at hand to give advice along the way
-Producing a final piece of art
-Getting ready to paint by yourself.

As this is an experiment for me as well, I am limiting this to 3 people only to start with. One place is booked already so if you are intested, please let me know quickly.
 

My studio looking its best...This is not normal and will be rearranged for the classes.
