Join artist Gaven Alexander to learn more about the medium of oil paint and how best to use it to create a landscape painting over a series of 4 workshops.

Gaven will introduce you to working with oils by demonstrating how best to use mediums, learning new brush techniques and how to build up layers of colour as well as helping you to create your own original landscape painting by offering guidance on perspective, composition and colour palettes as your painting progresses.

This course is a must for anyone who has always wanted to try oil painting, each workshop takes place in our light and airy studio and all materials are included in the price as well as refreshments available throughout the morning. Please bring an apron or wear clothes you don't mind getting messy in.

Gaven is looking to create a relaxed atmosphere during the classes.  Taking away any pressures from learning a new skill, Gaven is easy to talk to and open to any questions you may have enabling you to enjoy and push your painting forward with confidence.

Gaven has been painting for over 30 years with oil paints and is looking forward to passing his experiences on with you.
