Painting Still Life – Summer Fruit & Drink
SUMMER DRINKS | VIBRANT FRUIT | REFRESHERS
Join us as we dive into painting a summery still life theme. From colourful drinks to vibrant fruit, your teacher will support you in learning to use your paints fluidly. There will be drinks on the menu, as you explore the cylindrical shapes of glasses and bottles. You’ll paint bright and beautiful fruits and end with a refreshing series of summer ice lollies. Plunge into watercolour for an hour each week and grow as an artist.
