A Taste of Art: Painting with Oils

The Old Courthouse Thirsk
Wednesday 6th November

With all materials included and each workshop suitable for beginners, our Wednesday morning Taste Of... sessions give the perfect introduction to a range of artistic styles and techniques.

Create your own landscape or still life artwork using this traditional painting medium. Through mixing varying colours and tones, you will be able to create a simple painting and learn brush techniques, as well as how to mix colours successfully and create light and shadow within your piece. If you are stuck for inspiration, don't worry, we will provide a selection of ideas to choose from.

Suitable For: All abilities.

Materials: All materials provided.

Other Info:

  • Please feel free to bring your own books or photos to work from but make sure to keep it simple.

'Taste of Art' workshops are creative sessions that are friendly, informal and good fun and aim to provide an introduction to a technique or art form. Lasting an hour and a half they are run by qualified tutors and artists and aim to give you an insight into a craft and inspire you to do more.

You don't have to be a creative person to take part as the sessions are aimed at all levels and the focus is on experimentation. Most of our sessions use materials and equipment that are accessible and low cost and we always try to provide ceramic activities that utilise our kiln.

'Taste Of Art' sessions will provide you with an opportunity to make new friends and meet up with other budding creatives.

'Taste of Art' sessions run during the school term and a detailed programme is released on this website.

Please bring an apron.
