If you have ever wondered what terms such as Scumbling, Impasto, Fat Over Lean and Sgraffito mean, now is your chance to find out, on a new six-week course in Caerwedros. An Introduction to Oil Painting will take place at Neuadd Goffa Caerwedros, Caerwedros Memorial Hall, on Tuesday mornings from 10am to 12pm, March 4 to April 8. It will be led by local artist Lynn Parr, who has shown work at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, among other prestigious venues, and sold her work around the world.

From basic information such as choosing the right brush to more advanced methods such as glazing, each session consists of demonstration, practical application and a discussion of how professional artists use the various techniques. You will be painting right from the first session. No painting experience is required, but Lynn promises that even people who have painted in watercolour will learn new techniques.

Each session costs £15, but if you pay in advance for the six-week course, the sessions break down to £10 each. For more information and to book, email info@lynnparr.co.uk, or ring 07817 500671, or 01545 561309.
