What you will do

2.5 hour class

Evening

This fun and creative painting class will give you professional step-by-step guidance as you let your inner artist run wild. The class is inspired around Hokusai's great wave. So grab a glass of wine and a paintbrush, and let out your sense of creativity in this relaxed and interactive course.

In this class

No experience is needed as you paint the beautiful surroundings of St. Pauls Cathedral, accompanied with a glass or two of wine. Guidance will be given, although students are free to experiment with their paintings as much as they dare to add their own artistic touch.

Now you can

  • Add a new skill to the repertoire
  • Continue practicing in your own time with the skills acquired during the class
  • Meet like-minded people with whom you share a passion

Not quite as good as a previousy I attended (Paint London in Obby Stratford). In terms of the painting - this is quite a hard one to do, and the instructor at the front was not very good at giving instructions. He did not really tell us how to blend our colours, when to start on different aspects of the painting, or which techniques would work best to get the right look for the waves etc. He just did his own painting and didn't interact very much unless specifically asked. The other 2 painters going around were quite good (they were the same people who I met at my previous painting class) however I was hoping to get more instruction from the guy at the front. Also because he didn't speak very much, everyone was painting at different rates and towards the end lots of people (including me) ran out of time and left with unfinished paintings as we did not realise to move onto the next step when he did. They also started the class late as 2 people turned up late which also contributed to this. In terms of the location - this class was held in the Horniman pub at London Bridge. We paid more for this class than others in the series - is this because of the zone 1 location? Given this class cost more, it was really disappointing how uncomfortable the room was. We were in the basement and the lights were really dim and artificial so it was difficult to mix the right shade of paint - I came home with a painting that looked a lot different in natural light than it did in class! Also it was extremely hot! There was no aircon and halfway through the class we realised that the radiators were also on! We told the instructors but they claimed they had already flagged the issue up to the venue and there was nothing to be done. This made it a really uncomfortable experience, lots of people were complaining and hoping to just finish the class and get out of that room! Overall I l still ove the concept but would not go to a class at the Horniman and again and would appreciate more instructions.
