Learn to Paint with Linda Options

 

* Suitable for Absolute beginners - We have a selection of super easy projects to choose from that will guarantee success for even those who claim they can't draw stick men.

 Q-tip Art

This is a surprisingly easy form of painting as we use a q-tip instead of a paint brush and build the image using a series of dots.  We create these stunning abstract images on a black canvass which we prepare in class.  You also learn how to use the colour wheel and blend paint to open up a while world of possibilities from just a few tubes of paint.

Hen Party Paint night

This is a fun evening where you will paint not one but two crazy chickens. Linda will show you how to prepare a mottled background, draw chickens that are full of character and bring them to life in acrylic paints.  The second painting will be on a black canvass - you will learn how to do the under-painintg so the colours pop of the page.  Suitable for anyone over 12yrs. 

Learn to Paint with Coffee

This is a fun class suitable for budding artists of all ages and yes we will be painting with coffee.

Come out and try this amazing art medium - but be careful coffee can be addictive.

Paint with Purpose

If you love the idea of getting together with friends and painting but wonder where you will hang your finished masterpiece.

This option is perfect for you.

In this class you will paint a picture with the intention of gifting it to either a special child in your life ( I have some fabulous projects that kids will love to hang in their room)  Or for a parent or grandparent.

All paints, brushes, specialty pencils and materials are provided.

We will even loan you an apron to keep your clothes clean.

If you enjoy the process you are welcome to come back and create more paintings in the company of friends and with personal help from Linda Finstad in which ever style you prefer.

Each class is approx. 3 hours in duration, which means not everyone in the class will finish their painting.  Which is OK because  by the end of the class you will have the necessary skills to finish your painting on your own at home.  However you are welcome to register for another class and bring your painting with you to finish off in class (then start another one).

Q-Tip art

As you can see this style of painting lends itself to many subjects  - not just horses. 

If you are intimidated by applying paint to a canvass using brush strokes - then you will love the control and ease of blending this method of creating art provides.

Class projects range from sweet and simple to advanced works of art. Once you have the theses techniques at your finger tips or should I say

Q-tips the sky is the limit.
