Course Summary

Think of something you would love to paint and together we will investigate the layers of that painting, enabling you to see your paintings in a light you may never have seen before.
Whether it be contemporary, abstract, expressive or just inspiring to you, the piece you choose will be broken down and explained into a simplified language.
Dimension and thickening mediums are explored and the freedom of expression and experimentation are encouraged too.
