SKILLSETS is delighted to welcome back artist Bríd Higgins Ní Chinnéide to teach a 5 week course focusing on painting from life. The course will cover portraiture, hands, and the clothed figure.  Class will run from 10:00 until 13:00 every Tuesday morning for 5 weeks.

The course will include demonstrations and guidance from the artist, as well as an opportunity to paint faces, hands and clothing from life. The focus will be on quick responses to anatomical form and colour as well as discussions about the various decisions to be made in creating a strong composition. Bríd will also offer guidance on the use of oil paints and materials.

This course is intended for people with some painting experience to hone their observation and alla prima oil painting skills.
