    Oil Painting Classes

    WITH

    Ellie Sweetman

    Welcome to the joy of oil painting! Ellie Sweetman will share with you her simple, step by step approach that makes oil painting super satisfying and achievable for everyone.

    During this class, you will learn how to capture an image with free-flowing brushstrokes in a relaxed and encouraging environment. This is an ongoing class, you are welcome to come back each week! Each class will cover a different artwork, where the group will have the option of painting a new image with Ellie or choosing from her back catalogue of favourites.

    This class is beginner and intermediate-friendly. We use artist quality paints to ensure everyone has the best opportunity to come away with a painting they are proud to hang on their wall.

    Everyone will leave this class with a gorgeous new botanical artwork to take home (IT WILL BE WET) and the skills to continue this relaxing artform!

    In Ellie’s words: “We are not looking for perfection! We are learning how to simplify what we see, and then allow our brush and paint to do its own beautiful thing.”

    Please note:

    • Beginner and intermediate friendly.
    • 2 and 4 hour group classes available.
    • Oil paints often get a bad rap for being sometimes used alongside toxic solvents. In this class, your health and well being is our priority, so our studio has good ventilation and we use only non-toxic solvent-free mediums.
    • All materials, including aprons and morning tea are provided.
    • Please bring a box (at least 13″ x 13″), an old towel or newspaper to protect your belongings from the wet painting when you take it home after class.
    • Available for group bookings of 4-8 people, and private bookings.
    • Please arrive 15 minutes early to set up.
    • Our workshops require a minimum of three participants to go ahead. In the event that a workshop does not meet the minimum number of participants and is subsequently cancelled, students will be notified via text message and offered new dates or the option of a full refund.
    • You must be aged 15+ to attend this class
