Absolute beginner’s guide to painting


Have you always wanted to paint but don’t know where to start?

Maybe you did art in school but had a bad experience, or felt like you wanted to try but didn’t feel like you were good enough?

Well this course is for you!

At Art Academy East, we believe that art is for everyone – and ANYBODY can paint, with the right tutor, tools and practice. Yes – that means you!

Our Absolute Beginners Guide to Painting course is designed for even the most terrified beginner. For 6 weeks, you will be guided through the basics of watercolour, acrylic painting and oil painting, including how they work, the best tools to use, color mixing and techniques to use. Guided through every step of the process, you’ll complete small studies using your newly learned skills and even create your own finished paintings!

Our past learners of the Absolute Beginners Guide to Painting course have taken some of our other courses – our short courses which focus more on specific mediums and our Level 2 Diploma course. discovered a real passion for art – that’s what we decided to do!

The course runs from Tuesday September 6 to Tuesday October 11.

Choose between two times: 9:30 a.m. – 12 p.m. OR 1:30 p.m. – 4 p.m.

The cost of the course is £200 which includes all materials.

Our studio is welcoming and bright, with friendly and knowledgeable staff. We always try to create a really relaxed atmosphere – and we even have our own cafe bar so you can take a break with a coffee and cake!

We also have our own art supply store on site so you can pursue your new hobby at home if you wish. The staff are happy to help and advise you on what to get!

So why not give it a shot?

Here is what some of our former learners have said:

I’d say it’s really approachable if you’ve never picked up a brush. You grow in confidence of what you can achieve. Great lesson, thank you.
– Beginner

I enjoyed learning how to apply different types of paint using various techniques. Have dedicated time and space to focus on and be absorbed in the art. I highly recommend the course. Mark is an excellent tutor and creates a relaxing atmosphere in the classroom.

I enjoyed surprising myself with what I accomplished. Having a painting to take home and look at – inspiring. A great way to spend the afternoon and disconnect. I feel capable of doing it and I want to know more.
