Open to all art-makers of all skill levels, this workshop will investigate many elements and processes that form a painting including under-painting, mark-making, layering and gesture.

Students will gain and deepen their understanding of how light, colour, surface and texture combine to create an image.

This course will be on paper only (which will be supplied for a minimal fee).
