Burnham painting course invites artists to brush up their skills
artists in the Burnham-On-Sea area are being invited to brush
up their painting skills at a new training course starting in
the town on March 1st.
Skills and Learning is launching the course, called 'Painting
in a Range of Media', at its centre next to the library in Princess
many other art courses that tend to focus on one medium, this
10-week course will enable learners to experiment with three different
paints, giving everyone a taste of what each paint can achieve,
how to apply it, and how to use it.
Tutor Ade Bowen told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Its a great
beginners course for anybody who would like to start painting
but is a bit nervous, but I have also found in the past that people
who are using one type of paint like to come along to learn techniques
and ideas form other mediums. This makes the classes a great creative
boiling pot of ideas."
The first course starts on Tuesday 1st March, from 10am to 12pm.
It will cover the media of watercolour, acrylics and oils, pointing
out the benefits and limitations of each and comparing them for
suitability of subject.
To enrol, call 0845 688 0488 or visit the centre in Princess
Street. For further information, email the tutor here.
