Drawing & Painting Studio

About Drawing & Painting Studio

This course enables participants to spend a morning (10am-12pm), afternoon (1 - 3pm) or full day (10am - 3pm) in the studio, building the skills and techniques necessary to create original work in watercolour, oil or acrylics. Tutor-led demonstrations will encourage you to experiment with a variety of media and genres, developing your own individual style and approach. This is a studio based class, where participants can work on their individual pieces, at their own pace with encouragement, tips and critique from Michael Durning. Suitable for beginners to more experienced artists wanting to improve their skills.

Michael Durning PPAI PAI RSW, former president of the Paisley Arts Institute, studied Fine Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, graduating with a BA (Hons) in 1992. Michael went on to study an MA in Fine Art at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen and has since exhibited his paintings throughout the UK and Europe.

Time: 10am - Midday, 1pm - 3pm OR 10am - 3pm
