I have been teaching oil painting lessons both in person and online for several years now and I love it! I focus on colour theory, complimentary colours, contrast, composition.. and most of all; inspiring confidence! I teach both paintbrush and palette knife techniques and I use water-mixable oil paints. It is such a wonderful feeling for me to help someone to create a beautiful painting, and to see their eyes light up with a sense of accomplishment, and sometimes of astonishment as they didn't realise they were capable of doing it to begin with! My intention with my classes is to empower my students with the tools they need to create their own lifelong artistic journeys, and the belief that yes.. they are all artists and they are capable of wonderful things!
"I highly recommend Lucy's art class. It was so much fun, I loved it! Lucy is a talented artist. She's very encouraging and positive, it's a welcoming environment. Lucy wants everyone to be proud of their work. Her classes have a personal touch and are very relaxing. I learnt new skills and enjoyed the other ladies there. It was a fun experience."
"I have so enjoyed the time I spent with you learning to see shades of colour in the world around me and mixing the paints to create those colours. You have taught me to use the palette knife and different brush strokes and techniques, but most of all inspired me to bring out the artist inside of me. I so enjoyed your beautiful spirit and the friendship of your company"
"The painting class was a wonderful way to spend a summer day! The class was so relaxed, fun and creative. I learnt a great deal about shadowing, mixing colours and perspective. I no longer feel nervous or anxious about applying paint to a canvas with either a brush or a palette knife. In the end I had a picture to hang in my kitchen. I will definitely sign up again."
"I really enjoyed the classes and my 2 pieces. Can't wait until when we can resume"
