The Beginners Art Class is for anyone who would like to learn to draw and paint. Where and how to start can be a daunting process. The course is designed for those of you who don’t know where to start or just want a refresher on the basics of painting. Over the 4 lessons, we will introduce you to the various materials used and what you will need. We will prepare a canvas; start your composition and guide you through the paint application with a variety of utensils.
We will cover both the use of acrylic paint and oil paint, allowing you to choose which medium would suit your style.
