In each session participants will view and discuss selected works within the exhibition prior to commencing an oil painting in Heide’s beautifully situated Education Centre. All materials are provided. Suitable for all skill levels, no prior painting experience required. Enrol in all four classes and receive a 20 per cent discount.
