On the search for fun things to do at home? Over four weeks, discover the joys of painting with artist Nicola Bartos!

Anyone can learn to paint and with this course, you can even do it from the comfort of your own home! If you're an absolute beginner - or a bit of a dabbler and wanting to brush up your skills - this course is an opportunity to learn with a small group in a relaxed and casual atmosphere.

Learn on Zoom over four weekly sessions, with exercises, demonstrations and discussion throughout, as you gain an understanding of the acrylic painting basics.

What you'll learn:

  • Composition and formatting
  • Colour theory
  • Palette layout
  • Types of paints, mediums and brushes
  • Types of application and support
  • Setting a painting out from start to finish

At the end of each session, notice your confidence grow as you continue your very own DIY projects and make artworks you can be proud of!
