Over five weeks, artist Michelle Caithness will introduce you to:

  • Underpainting
  • Composition
  • Colour mixing
  • Colour theory
  • Value (light and dark)
  • Application of paint

Once you have covered the basics and have experimented with the medium, you will then create a painting over the final four weeks. Michelle will offer one-on-one tuition whilst you are working on your own painting. We encourage students to bring in a photo, or artwork which they would like to recreate. A simple still life will also be set up if students wish to paint from life.
