Learning Pathways - Painting with Oil Colours

"Anyone can paint if they are given the right instructions.” - Marcel Desbiens, Master Artist and Principal Tutor

Marcel has designed learning pathways to give students structure as they develop from novice to advanced artist.

If you have never picked up a paintbrush before, the Foundations in Oils course will give you the technical skills and knowledge to help fast track your painting process and produce stunning works of art of your own. All in a friendly and supportive environment.

The Course has been designed by Marcel Desbiens and has been developed over the years by the team including Ai Shah, Catherine Aboud and Ros Danka.

All materials are included. All you need to do is turn up!

Once you have completed the Foundations in Oils course, it's time to Gain Confidence in Oils (daytime) or Gain Confidence in Oils (evening), applying the techniques you have learnt to a subject of your choosing.

Next, you can focus on your own work while given expert guidance in the studio environment with Studio Painting.

And you can then develop and broaden your skills with a weekend workshop run by a guest artist, covering a range of subjects.

Capturing Skies | Hobie Porter

Capturing Skies | Hobie Porter

About this workshop This workshop focuses on the importance of the sky in a painting to maximise its atmospheric effect. Sky is often thought of as a backdrop to a landscape subject and is consequentially valued less than the subject itself. When a painter neglects any component of their painting, they leave a hole in their work and the result is usually poor. This workshop, therefore, treats the sky not as a mere backdrop, but as the main subject. A painting of a sky should be... [More]
