Oil Painting Refresher Course
Sunday 24 September, 10am to 4pm (including lunch break)
Join acclaimed artist and tutor Ceri Allen for this fun workshop ideal for those who would like ot try their hand at oil painting, or a 'refresher' course for those people who already have some experience.
Ceri will introduce the course with a short discussion followed by a demonstration of techniques and tips.
If you have your own paints and materials you're welcome to bring them along; if not, don't worry there will be paints, boards and brushes available for you to use. As well as a wide palette of colours to choose from, it goes without saying that Florence Paintmakers' own Egremont Red oil paint will also be included.
Please also feel free to bring sketches, drawings or imaages that you would like to work with. There will be a variety of images, still life objects and set-ups which can also be used.
Booking is essential as places are limited.
