How to Paint Classes - Beginners 2

If you have tried your hand at painting, but still feel like there is a lot of ground to cover, our How to Paint Classes - Beginners 2 is perfect for you. This lively art course is not for absolute beginners, but great if you have done some painting before and want to build on what you have learnt, or if you want a refresher course and improve your technique.

Using environmentally friendly, water-mixable oil paints our experienced tutors will give practical demonstrations. You will learn how to mix and apply oil paints, and be guided through all aspects, from getting started on a blank canvas to creating a series of exciting paintings. Along the way you’ll study and compare techniques used by different artists to help develop and support your progress.

If you are new to painting start with our How to Paint - Beginners 1 course.

No Venue

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
