Classes Available at Sligo Oil Painting
I provide art classes for those who would like to learn new painting styles, explore their creative potential, develop their visual awareness and improve their understanding of art techniques and processes mainly through the media of oils and acrylics,
My classes cater for beginners and for the more experienced painters. I have many years of teaching experience that gives me the knowledge to help people discover and nurture their creative gift
With tuition given individually according to their own ability, they will be encouraged to become more aware of colour, tone, light, and texture, informing them of the knowledge needed to complete a painting using many different subject matters of their choice, such as still life, landscapes, seascapes, abstract etc.,leading to an increased awareness and confidence in their approach to painting and drawing.
They will find it very satisfying when they engage with paint and actually create something from nothing; Imagine beginning with a blank canvas or board and ending up with a completed painting. They will notice that painting and drawing open up a delightful new world, one full of drama, colour and excitement.
Not only will they end up with completed painting to proudly display at home, but paintings that they can give to others or perhaps even sell. It is also a great way to reduce stress and improve their general health and well-being .
My studio is comfortable and bright with nice music in the background for inspiration and relaxation. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided at the class. I also have a supply of canvass, boards and paints etc where one can purchase any materials required.
Picture framing service is also available
