Cost: £90 per 6 week course

Maximum 10 places

Come and join us to discover the rich and versatile medium of oil paint. This is a mixed ability class, suitable for complete beginners as well as those who would like to develop their practice. Through a mainly project-based approach you will learn about oil painting techniques and materials. We will also look at colour theory and mixing, values, form, perspective and other visual elements which all play their part in the creation of a successful painting in any medium. I aim to create a relaxed and friendly learning environment and am always open to students own ideas, suggestions and directions. For many years I have enjoyed teaching adults in Plymouth, the local area and for the last 6 years I have run art classes at Ilminster Art Centre in Somerset.
Materials are provided for the first class when I will give a list and discuss what you need to get started. Just bring an old shirt! If there is anything you would like to discuss please contact me.

Belinda's "Paint like Van Gogh" course was excellent and I can't believe how pleased I was with the oil painting that I managed to produce in such a short amount of time, especially having never used oils before. Belinda has a lovely teaching style which would be just as well received by beginners as by more experienced painters and she obviously really enjoys teaching and inspiring other to develop their painting techniques. Highly recommended! Sarah H, July 2018

“Thank you for the week end class, I enjoyed having the opportunity to try using oil as a medium and Van Gogh is one of my favourite artists so I was very inspired. I found your teaching thorough and easy to understand with lots of helpful tips. The atmosphere throughout was relaxed and friendly and I am very pleased with the work I produced.” Chris D, 2018
