About the Event

An Introduction to Oil Painting, a 6 week afternoon Course With Kevin Scully


2nd November - 7th December 

Tuesday Afternoons: 2pm - 4.15pm

On this  inspiring beginner’s course you’ll learn how to paint in traditional oils in simple and easily achievable stages. 

You’ll learn about colour mixing and paint application, as well as advice on the best materials to use in helping you produce the most satisfactory results.

The course will lead you through the selection and preparation of suitable painting surfaces, subject matter, and composition. There will be demonstrations of painting techniques with both brush and palette knife, and you will have plenty of sympathetic, one-to-one assistance in developing your own preferred style of painting.

The subject matter will be varied, encompassing still life subjects, landscapes, and seascapes. The course will be a fun and light-hearted introduction to the possibilities of this versatile medium.

A variety of reference material will be provided, but towards the end of the course you may bring along any images or objects that you would like to work from.

Age 17+ (no exceptions)

Places are non-refundable and non-transferable.

COVID PRECAUTIONS: We ask that you please  wash/sanitise your hands regularly throughout the sessions - the wearing of masks is not required, but it is preferred. The studio space is vigorously cleaned before & after all sessions during this time. 

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do get in touch with us:

If you are feeling unwell, we ask that you please don't risk the health of others, please refrain from coming to the studio (no matter HOW much you want to draw).

We hate being this strict - but we'd hate anyone to come to any harm and we'd also hate to have to close the school again!



Due to an extremely small admin team, the time it takes up and the financial difficulty it causes the HSA, we are unable to offer refunds or replacements for orders made in error or a changed mind. Please make sure you check the date BEFORE placing the order.

We are unable to offer refunds or replacements for forgotten/missed sessions which are the responsibility of the purchaser.

In the extremely rare case where a refund is issued there will be a service charge taken for our time and the payment/booking charges we have incurred.

If it's our fault:

If you're unable to attend the session through a mishap/error on our part, we will make sure you are provided with a voucher to attend any forthcoming sessions of the same type - alternatively we will issue a refund.

The income from the events is used to pay for our brilliant tutors, models & photographers, the rent on our studio and of course to pay the salaries of the hard working folk behind the scenes who put all our workshops and events on.
