John York welcomes adult beginners through to experienced painters in this class of painting in acrylics or watercolours. He aims to enthuse, educate and inspire students. Each student will be able to pursue the style and subject matter of his or her choice in an enjoyable, supportive and creative atmosphere.
The course covers basic theory of colours, perspective, composition, creating atmosphere in your paintings and techniques for special effects. Your entry level will be taken into account and classes are structured to develop your unique strengths as an artist.
