10 Weeks from Monday 20th April

to Monday 29th June

(Please note that there is no class on Monday 25th May)


13a Great King Street, EH3 6QW


This course is designed to encourage and give confidence to those who are keen to learn how to paint; using acrylic paint, which is water based fast drying and versatile, you will learn how to handle this medium and apply it onto the surface.

Selina will guide you through covering the basics of light, colour, shade and form, using different surfaces, materials and composition, and you will start off with basic shapes so you can really master and understand the light and shading that creates the form.


Once you know your basics and feel comfortable with the medium, we can use the tools you have learnt to start painting anything that inspires you freely and we will have lots of fun in the process!
