Ever wanted to learn how to paint? Hoping to dust off the brushes?

Join painter Lily Platts for a six-week intensive that will take you through the basics of painting and give you the confidence to begin to discover your own self-expression through paint.

You will be introduced to watercolour and acrylic paint and explore concepts such as colour theory, composition and form. Throughout the class, Lily will introduce you to artists that use these concepts and explain how you can apply this to your own work. No experience is required, and all are welcome! All materials included!

The class will cover an introduction to materials, quick sketching using watercolours and how to compose an image. Painting using tone, exploring light and dark. Deep dive into colour theory. Colour mixing and learning to get the colour you want. Exploring different ways of applying paint on the page and the range of tools used in painting

Finding your voice in the final week will allow the artist to explore what interests them and create an image that reflects this!
