Courses > The Taster Day

Moonlight Bay by Colin Mason
Sunset Bay by Colin Mason

This is for those who would like to try painting or drawing for the first time but are not sure where to start. It’s an introduction to the exciting world and atmosphere of the Artist. It is geared around the functions of a studio and takes you through all the aspects of painting from the palette, colour mixing, brushes and materials in a step by step process.

The Taster introduces to you all the key concepts about preparation, from choosing the painting surface to the paints and brushes and the different mediums of oils, acrylics and perhaps the pencil. A key element of the Taster is its “Hands On” element, which is paramount to the experience of how it all works and comes together. 

“The Taster days are truly for everyone and seeing people who have never taken up a brush before and producing Art is really amazing. The day takes the mystery out of how it all works, how it comes together and what can be achieved.”

All materials, equipment a light lunch and refreshments are included in the course fee.
