Beginners Landscape Painting - Socially Distanced Course

If you've enjoyed our drawing courses, or you already feel quite confident about drawing but would love to take those tentative steps towards trying your hand at painting, then this is the course for you! It's designed to enable you to begin landscape painting by following some key steps which will lay the foundations for further painting. The course is on the beautiful Hampstead Heath in London, where using a limited colour palette of acrylic paints, you will carry out some warm up exercises learning how to block out shades and shapes, blend colours, then learn how to paint on canvas boards on a basic composition. Once you've got to grips with the essentials we'll set you up with your own painting, and guide you through the steps to create your own masterpiece. 

How We're Making it Safe

-The whole course will take place outdoors.
-Paints will be set up on a central table and hand sanitiser will be provided for use after you've topped up your paints.
