What to expect on Beginners’ Oil Painting Workshop

This is a busy workshop that combines drawing and exercises with charcoal followed by the same exercises using oil paints. You learn about the exercises with step one, and about oil painting in step two.

You will look at mixing paints, tone, and paint application and learn about the different materials, tools and other equipment needed. It is a very busy, exciting and productive three days. 


We provide the materials but ask you to bring an apron, and some rags and a couple of jam jars.

As the course progresses we will suggest what you should buy to start your oil painting kit.
