Essential coronavirus info Your safety is our first priority.
Learn to master some of the techniques of oil painting as you discover why this versatile medium has been a favourite choice for many artists over the centuries. This course has been specially designed for younger students who will spend a week working alongside a practising artist to learn the techniques and experiment with new processes. The course includes a visit to Tate Modern where students can look at how artists have worked with oils over the past 100 years. Back in the studio you will learn about composition, colour and application as you create your own works from observation and photographs. You will experiment with a variety of techniques from the traditional to contemporary. This course promises to be hands on and dynamic as we encourage you to explore scale and consider the possibilities of working on a range of surfaces.
