Oil Painting – Two Teachers One Dynamic Day!

 3 Spaces currently available…


Just announced!  Denise Hogan is teaming up with fellow art teacher Gillian Christie to offer an intimate & dynamic day learning how to paint with oils.  This complete workshop will be followed by a second day in March/April for those who wish to learn more about oils & mixed media focusing on age-old masters techniques in a modern way.

The class is STRICTLY limited to 10 places to ensure all students will reap the benefits of both teachers’ passion and experience within an intimate studio setting. (3 Spaces currently available…)

Part 1: Sat 20th Feb: Suitable for beginners & all skill levels.   Learn to create a painting in gorgeous, rich oil paints in just one day!

Using high quality oil paints, you will be supported with tips and techniques from two practicing artists with over 50 years experience between them to explore your passion and interact with your own creativity – surprising yourself with the result.

Start at the very beginning under the professional guidance and encouragement of award-winning artists Denise Hogan & fellow artist and teacher Edinburgh College of Art educated Gillian Christie.  Learn how to choose a suitable image to work from (or bring your own), how to easily create that image on canvas and bring the whole painting to life – simply, easily and whilst having the most fun.

Like Denise & Gill’s  regular weekly classes you will learn how to look at Art, how to read Art and how to communicate with your materials.  No experience is necessary.  All are welcome from complete beginners to experienced painters.  Everyone will be working on their own image at their own pace so there is no pressure to keep up with anyone but yourself!

All the materials you will need are provided, including paints, brushes, canvas, sketching materials and image library. Feel free to bring your own image to paint from if you wish. There is also a small library of art books and lessons here at the studio to choose from.

The workshops run from  10.30am – 5.30pm with refreshments available all day. There is a break at midday to enjoy a home cooked lunch.

Book your place early to avoid disappointment.
