Paint Like the Masters at Home

Learn to paint in the style of the masters at this fun virtual art class.



2 hours Class size 1 to 50     label £5

If you're an admirer of art and would love to give it a go yourself, log in to this live-streaming art class where you can learn to paint just like your favourite artists. From Monet's gorgeous landscapes to the abstract oils of Picasso, you'll learn a whole host of nifty painting techniques at this fun, interactive art class.

Hosted by talented artist Liddy, this is a virtual space where all are welcome to come along, make new friends and explore their creative potential. Each session will take inspiration from a different artist's style or iconic work, which you'll then use as a jumping-off point to create a mini-masterpiece of your own.

You'll paint along at your own pace, gently guided by your friendly, experienced teacher, who'll be on hand with all the tips, advice and help you'll need. Covering everything from blending paint to using the right brush, you'll gain skills that you can use to start painting on your own — get ready to be hooked on art!

For our Paint Like... sessions we will paint a specific art work by the named artist. In the Style of... sessions we will attempt our own work, but using the style of the artist (for the three portrait sessions in February - Picasso, Van Gogh and Modigliani, please ensure you have a photo of your subject to view)

Very enjoyable class. Learned about the life and works of Van Gogh. Such a shame these artists weren't recognised more during their lifetime.

Liddy is the best teacher ever. You are given plenty time to paint along and Liddy gives you the background to the artist, as well as some top tips for painting. Fabulous class.
