Our weekly painting course in Derby is a fun, engaging and relaxing environment where you will meet and work with like-minded people. The course is suitable for beginners, hobbyists and artists, where you can work at your own pace under the guidance of an art lecturer.

Throughout the seven weeks, you will learn the basics of colour theory and explore a variety of painting techniques and skills in order to create your own artworks ready to hang. Demos will also be shown on canvas stretching and ways to present your work.
