This course will give more flexibility and time to explore this fascinating art form in greater depth. Beginners joining at this point will be introduced to the basics, producing paintings in a wide variety of subjects. Improvers will be encouraged to increase their skills, both in strokes and composition. With a background of relaxing music a selection of flower, fruit, animal, bird, fish or landscape will be shown in traditional demonstration and practice sessions. Evenings will be more relaxed with video or slides on painting, travel or culture.
