Painting technique workshop

The purpose of the courses taught here is to enable students to make conscious, meaningful choices of materials and craft techniques, supporting the development of their personal, authentic style.


Students undertake practical exercises to acquire knowledge of traditional and contemporary painting techniques, test materials, compare their properties and explore their advantages or disadvantages.

The basic course covers the following topics:

  • supports
  • primers
  • pigments
  • binders
  • solvents
  • composition and choice of materials
  • safety advice

Advanced courses on specific themes build on the basic course. Dates and lists are displayed in the workshop. Courses are limited to seven participants.
