Simon Birtall runs weekly painting classes for adults at The Parade. Classes are suitable for beginners or more experienced artists, working in either oils or acrylics.
Simon’s teaching attempts to suppress some of the stifling inhibitions experienced by many amateur painters in order to liberate creativity and put students on a more personal journey. He aims to help students produce truly original work about which they can feel proud, excited and creatively fulfilled.
Classes are thematically structured and provide instruction on fundamental elements of painting such as colour mixing and the use of perspective. Simon makes brief demonstrations at many classes in order to illustrate working practice. Teaching takes into account skill and confidence levels of respective students.
Classes run from 2:15 to 4.45pm on Wednesday afternoons. Students attending their first class will be charged £5, with subsequent visits costing £7 per session. Please note that in order to control numbers, booking is essential. For further information on classes, please telephone 0779 0471 098 or email [email protected]
