Six weeks of colour
This is an online course that takes place over a six week period where I will you step by step through painting your own masterpiece!. There is no rush as you can complete this at your own pace and in your own time without even having to leave the comfort of your home!
Hopefully all the information you need is in the sections below, but if you can't find an answer to your question please send me an email and I'll get back to you.
I can't wait to start painting with you.
"Art has always been one of those things I wistfully wished I could do. If I picked up a pencil or paintbrush and attempted to create something vaguely artistic the result would be laughable to say the least. So I accepted it wasn't for me.
Then I met Julie Dumbarton. She is an outstanding artist - her paintings are full of life and vibrancy - no wonder she calls them colourhugs. I loved her work so much I couldn't resist putting my name down for one of her courses - even though I fully expected to be the dunce of the class.
It turns out that Julie is an inspirational teacher as well. She sets her pupils free to express themselves and enjoy themselves. During that first course I had loads of laughs, made many new friends, got covered in paint and discovered the absolute joy there is to be found in being creative.
Art has made me so much more aware of the world around me. Instead of just seeing a tree I now see shadows and shafts of light on the leaves. My beautiful horses skin is no longer just black, but a complex mix of tones and shades, highlights and lowlights. And .human faces are a fascinating mix of angles and curves and colours galore.
To anyone who thinks they can't draw or paint - take a Julie Dumbarton course and discover the inner artist you never knew existed!"
