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.
