I've never painted before, will I be able to join in?
Absolutely! ..... this is designed to help you find the confidence to have a go, once you start, you will be hooked. I have been teaching for many years and everyone is always daunted or scared. Feeling overwhelmed by tips, rules, dont's, do's, how do I start? - I hopefully have found a way to help you come over all these obstacles - its designed for you to have fun and find painting relaxing and enjoyable.
How do I know if this course is for me?
This course is for you if you really want to have a go at painting. You will earn lots of techniques and I have designed step by step follow along tutorials so all you have to do is follow the instructions. As you gain confidence you can have a go at other subjects after learning all the basic techniques.I’ve never done online class before. How does it work?
You will have lifetime access to work through the course material, so all you need is a little room and you can work on this is your own time. You'll receive an email every Friday with that weeks video tutorial and notes.
Will I be able to communicate with others during the course?
Yes, you will have access to a Private Facebook Community which I've set up you can chat with others, talk about how you're getting on and share images of your paintings. This space is open to all students, and will remain open after the course for everyone taking part to continue using. I'll also be joining in with the conversations from time to time.
How much physical space will I need?
I will be encouraging you to paint one large painting throughout the six weeks, I will be painting a canvas that is 60cm x 6-cm and i will also be painting on smaller canvases for tutorials.. You will need enough space to paint on the canvas and step away from time to time. The actual space itself can be anywhere — in your kitchen, spare room, garage, or even your garden. Just remember, this can be a messy process, so you’ll want to protect your floors - maybe with attic sheeting or a dust sheet.
How do I access the course material?
