Have you always wanted to learn how to paint? Start your creative journey here at this painting course as you're taught the ins and outs of this colourful hobby by a talented artist and teacher.

In this series of five painting workshops, you'll mainly be working with water-soluble acrylic paints, but don't worry, all art supplies are provided including paint, canvas, and the still life objects you will be capturing. You'll pick up loads of handy tips and tricks from your teacher including how to use colour and how to progress your artwork from idea to drawing to completion.
