Event Location:

Rowan Humberstone

Have you always wanted to experiment with painting in oil, but you are not really sure where to start?  

The start to this 8-week course focuses on the basics of layering oil paint with a loose expressionist style directly onto the surface without an underlying drawing. We will be using photographs for reference, but the course focus will be primarily on understanding the beauty of oil paints and the extensive versatility they possess. 

The course will help build your confidence in further experimentation with oil painting.  

 Come along and join in the fun with 8 other interested art-minded people! 

 Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes, which you don’t mind getting paint on.   

When? Starting Monday 29 April, 6.30pm – 9pm for 8 weeks. There will be a break for the May bank holidays on Monday 6 and 27 May.

 Tutor: Jo Tunmer is a well-known professional Cambridge artist. She has been oil painting for 24 years, professionally since 2007. Her oil painting focus is on impressionistic landscapes. www.jotunmer.com 

 Materials: A basic range of materials will be provided for all participants to share.  During the course there will also be an optional opportunity to purchase, at a great price, additional painting supports.
