July 2021: Painting Essentials – 1 day beginners workshop with Sarah Jane Brown
Some exciting news! I am running a 1 day workshop for beginners in July, and can’t wait to welcome new students to my studio. This introductory workshop will cover a range of basics to help you get started in the wonderful world of painting.
Whether you’ve been wondering what materials and tools you might need, or how to finally make a start with that blank canvas, I will lead you gently through a number of short practical exercises with demos so that at the end of the day you’ll leave the studio feeling confident that you know where to begin.
Date: Saturday 10th July 2021
Time: 10 am – 4.30 pm (Lunch 30mins starting at around 1 pm)
No of available places: 10
Cost: £99 per person
What to expect
Clear instruction with demos, along with practical exercises and learning through playful experimentation using acrylics and mixed media. This is a fun 1 day introductory workshop to help you overcome ‘beginners block’. You will gain a range of basic painting skills, an understanding of different materials and the confidence to begin painting fearlessly.
NB: You do not need any drawing/painting experience for this workshop!
