Boost your confidence with step by step guidance and demonstrations focusing on the needs of the beginning painter.

You will learn the fundamentals of acrylic painting, including: colour mixing, composition, selecting brushes, brush stroke technique and preliminary sketching, presented in a concise, understandable way that you can easily remember and practice on your own.

Participants will paint a rewarding canvas to take home and gain the confidence, tools and information to continue their creative journey.

This workshop leads into the on-going series for the year.

A wonderful opportunity to learn from a master painter in a picturesque environment – just the right amount of people. Everything organized perfectly and individual attention. Great food and a relaxing but inspiring class.

Excellent workshop – learnt a great amount.
The personal touch Raymond gave was exceptional. Loved it! Inspired to learn more.
I felt relaxed and comfortable and enjoyed the workshop immensely. The variety of work both inside and outside was a lovely contrast.

It’s a beautiful way to spend some time and a beautiful environment to work within.
I thoroughly enjoyed today. This art class was beautifully presented and even as an experienced artist.
