  • Introduction to Oils Course Starting 22nd September


    Have you ever wanted to paint with oils, but have no idea where to start or what to buy?  This brand new course from Sara Karen has been created to cover all the basics for you.  It is a 5 week course starting on the 22nd September 10.30am running through to 1/1.30pm and covers the following:


    • What do I need to get started?
    • What is oil paint?
    • What ranges are available?
    • Using Mediums.
    • Safety.
    • Brushes and Canvas's
    • How to paint a Seascape, a Landscape, a Cityscape and a Forest scene.


    The course also includes your own oils kit which is yours to keep.   We have included a top quality 15 piece bristle brush set, an oils set to get you going plus solvent and medium plus canvas's for every session!  All you need to provide is an apron and a smile!


    Our sessions are around 2.5 to 3 hours long and include refreshments.  They take place at the home studio of Sara Karen which seats 4 people comfortably.  It is a lovely home from home environment and with our class numbers being small you get some one to one tuition.


    The weekly schedule will be as follows:


    22nd September - Introduction to your Oils Kit running through the basics and painting an easy piece to get you started.

    29th September - The Stunning Sea and Cloudscape.

    6th October - The quintessential English Landscape.

    13th October - The New York Rainy Cityscape.

    3rd November- The Mysterious Forest Scene.


    Our last session falls after the half term school holidays.


    PLEASE NOTE:  The studio is situated down a fairly steep flight of stone steps which may prove difficult to those with mobility issues.  Those in wheelchairs we sadly cannot accomodate.


    The course is for those aged 18 plus.
