January 12 to May 25th
Mairead Holohan facilitates a structured and easily accessible course for those who have never painted before and for those who want to reinforce their basic oil skills. It is also ideal for those who want to move on to using oil paints having had experience of acrylics or water-based media. Students will learn to see colour, shape and tone, and to relate these elements together in painting. Mairead will teach you how to observe and translate the world around you into your own way of making images. This course aims to nurture self-confidence and enjoyment of painting in a stimulating, fun and relaxing environment. It is an ideal course for beginners as there is plenty of guidance from the tutor.
Please note: Water based oil paints are used in the learning space to avoid any risk to health and wellbeing of our students. All materials are provided but students are encouraged to invest in their own paint brushes.
