Due to the nature of the classes the painting sessions are suitable for both the Beginner (some people have not painted since school) and the improver (those who wish to hone their existing painting skills). In each class Malcolm will demonstrate how to paint an effective scene in watercolour or acrylic. There is also the occasional session where the painting is done in line and wash, pastel or even oils (oils is usually a full day session). The sessions usually take place on Monday afternoons from 1-3pm but occasionally switch to Wednesday mornings when there is a bank holiday. If the session warrants it we take a full day but there is usually a half day option providing there is space.

Course Fee - £9.50p/afternoon session (£19 if it is a full day) - This includes all art materials as well as the loan of brushes etc

The sessions feature a paint- along where the participants will start and finish the painting within the session. The techniques used to produce the painting will follow a step by step approach. This method of teaching allows the individual to quickly develop confidence in using the paints. Skills are also built up through the explanation of the various techniques used in painting the scene as well as the theory, such as composition and colour theory, that goes with it. The development of a personal style of painting is encouraged through individual assessment at various stages of the painting. No one paints exactly the same, we are all unique.

Booking is preferable as course numbers will be kept small (max 16) to ensure individual attention.
