An Overview of the Oil Painting Lessons

What you will Learn, Beginners to Advanced

Set Courses

Many students' needs are catered for by one or more of the set courses. See Set Courses in the menu to the left for more detailed information on courses currently available.

Individual Programs of Tuition

An alternative to the set courses is to agree upon an individual program of lessons to suit your exact needs and interests.

For example, those who have been painting for a while may only need help with specific aspects - certain techniques or pieces of knowledge - in which case an individual program of lessons could be the best way of learning.

General Lesson Content

Learn with step-by-step instruction through special exercises, demonstrations and being guided through paintings as well as conversational tutorials.

All styles and subject matter are embraced (see Key Foundations, Methods and Subjects in the menu to the left).

Levels Catered For

The lessons have been designed for beginners who have little or no experience as well as experienced painters wishing to take their painting to a new level. The basics are learned thoroughly so as to give any beginner the ability to independently make their own oil paintings. The basics can also be covered as needed with experienced painters as well as more involved aspects.

The lessons cater for the following people:

Absolute beginners

Art students (GCSE, A-level, Degree)

Experienced oil painters wishing to improve their painting

One-to-one, Pairs and Small Classes

Lessons are usually given on a one-to-one basis, but if you have friends or family who would also like to receive tuition then lessons can be arranged for pairs or small classes of three.


A fixed regular schedule is recommended if at all possible. This can be as simple as two lessons each month or even one, depending on mutual availability. Practicing between lessons is very important, therefore one or two lessons per month can work well.
