YOUR FIRST TIME?

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

The very First Class with Allan achieves prescribed objectives in Colour Theory and Use of Oil Paint.
Follow On Classes are aimed at developing your artistic style and creative flair.
Drawing skills are not required to becoming a good painter, so please do not worry about drawing to begin with:
Allan will include drawing if and when your natural development requires it.

You will be supplied with oil painting paper and -

(i) begin with a basic introduction to colour theory, primary, secondary and tertiary mixing.

(ii) experiment with grey scale painting

(iii) look at tone and colour value

(iv) become familiar with the application and feel of oil paint

(v) following this you will experiment further by developing what you have already learnt, either by practising more of the same or having a go at a painting on your own canvas. Its up to you!

NOT A BEGINNER AND BEEN BEFORE?

(i) You will be able to get on with your own work, defining and redefining your style, picking up where you have left off, continually developing your skills base.

(ii) Your style may be abstract, expressionist, naive or anything else, whatever Allan's broad experience enables him to adapt his teaching style to your individual needs.

(iii) You will paint either a Studio Still Life or copy one of the many images we can supply or you supply yourself.

(iv) Allan will continually interact with you, passing on tips, setting challenges and learning objectives.

(v) You may complete a painting in the one class or be working on one over several classes or at home.

Students explore their personal style at their own pace, making and correcting mistakes as they develop. Importantly there are no mistakes in painting and "perfection" is an obsolete term.

Learning to paint is a lifetime process, even the most experienced professional artists at the top of their game are still learning.

Most importantly the workshop will be a focused yet humorous adventure for you to explore oils, gimmick free with no false promises.

Allan is great. I used to do oil painting but had called out of practice and his class was a great refresher. I'm now excited to paint again and I look forward to my new class and finishing the painting j started.

This was exactly what I wanted when I booked this oil painting class. Allan was patient & informative, offering varying levels of instruction to the small number of students (of varying skill level) in the studio. He provided an excellent creative environment & a wealth of knowledge in oil painting.

Really enjoyed this class. Allan was an interesting and engaging tutor. Very good atmosphere, and everyone was working on very different and individual paintings. Learned quite a lot on my first class. Going back next week.

Inspiring, interesting and thought provoking art class, which is tailored to each individual’s needs snd capabilities. Allan is skilled at developing and giving confidence to each person, and listens to what they want to achieve. Freedom is given to enhance your own talents, and to learn how to obtain your own unique style in a non conformist and non conventional way. Thoroughly enjoyable.

I learnt a lot from just one class with Allan. He gave us really useful colour mixing techniques and painting guidance which really helped me improve my skills. By the end of the day I had produced a piece of artwork I was really pleased with. Great location with a good size room to work in. Highly recommend!

I really enjoyed it and and will be back again soon. We went through some basic colour wheel blending and tips and even though I’m not a beginner it was very useful. Quirky funny teacher

Really good session, learning how to mix colours in oil paint. Allan is a good teacher with a strong sense of humour. He takes the time to speak to each individual and help them improve. The Kingston studio is light and airy. Good workspace and easy to find.

A very helpful and well organised course on the basics of colour mixing in oils, useful for both beginners and improvers. The tutor demonstrated well, and was encouraging to individual students, and the general atmosphere of the group was pleasant and friendly.

I really enjoyed it - great for first timers as well as those wanting to get back into painting. Allan was lovely as well as entertaining.

As a beginner I found the class very enjoyable, there wasn't the worry that what you produced, following Allan's clear instructions on colour mixing and applying the oil paint to paper, that it could be wrong. Having that freedom to do as much as you wanted in your own style was perfect and I very much look forward to my next session so thank you.

As a complete novice to the art of painting, the introduction to the colour wheel and the blending of the 6 primary colours was interesting and useful. I am pleased to have experimented with oil painting, and much as I love oil paintings, I’ve decided on a practical level it would suit me better to apply what I have learnt to painting with a different medium, possibly acrylics. The duration of the workshop was just right as an introduction, knowing that smaller, more focused workshops are available for someone wishing to take the interest further.

I did enjoy the class but would have liked a more detailed outline of the class content. Essentially it centred on the Colour Wheel and mixing colours. Had I known this, i would probably have chosen a different class. More details on each class please!

Hi there, Yes I really enjoyed this workshop. As Allan does so many, I felt he still cares about whether we had got the process or not. Would recommend to any of my friends. The most important thing about this teacher is, there's freedom of speech. Nothing is taken too seriously, which is perfect when painting. He is very encouraging and allows the creative flow to just..flow! Haha. Thanks

Allan was a very engaging tutor and constructive in steering me down the right path where oils are concerned. He is very accommodating and I’m sure our paths will cross again as I need further tutoring

Amazing! Made me realise abilities within myself that I otherwise wouldn’t have been able to find. Allan and Mila were great as well; made us all feel really welcomed and supported us through our work. The journey was definitely worth it! Thank you x
