Tailored to your individual requirements; bookable as a one-off or a 6-sessions short course.

The workshops are conducted in a friendly atmosphere, complete with a demonstration, breaking down the painting process to easy to follow steps. Whatever your level or experience, the sessions are sure to bring you closer to the freedom of expressive painting.

The Palette Colour Dynamics © Method is a revolutionary step-by-step system to help build up your artwork from blank canvas to finished painting. Following the painterly techniques of old masters, students avoid the typical beginners’ frustration of getting bogged down in detail too early. They learn to think like a painter, understand and apply colour theory, gain confidence in composition.

Combined with the use of painting knives, the course enables them to be more expressive and enjoy doing art: opening the door wider, and not just for the talented few.

Ideal group size 8-12, to allow for individual attention along the way. Larger groups may be accommodated, please ask.

Recommended age for workshops and courses:

8-88 years of age, able to use table utensils
