For all. Any medium.


Bring your favourite medium for a day of fun Xmas theme painting and celebration. Students old and new [perhaps you are wondering about trying us in the new year?] are invited to come and celebrate the end of the year by painting fun Christmas subjects. Whether it’s a snowy lake or cute penguin, anything goes today as we enjoy a lighthearted session amongst friends. It may just for your own enjoyment or to create a present/special cards, Liana will show you how to make your own satisfying creations with special snow effects.


Known for her fun, thorough and professional classes with lots of demonstration, Liana brings a lightheartedness and willingness to support each students’ interests, particularly in this time of small, distanced classes [in a large airy studio].

The ground

140 lb /300gram water colour paper is necessary for all painting [except oil] several sheets of A3 can be cut down as necessary,’rough’ gives nice texture. Avoid mixed media paper for w/col


With acrylics and oils canvas paper or board or stretched can be nicer to paint on, esp for a finished painting, in that ascending order. Size a4 to a3 depending on yr preference and speed of painting!



Linseed and turps for oils.


Art materials are never ending! [ However quality paints are superior] Bring what you have / basics from above. Explore reasonably priced ranges ,you can always upgrade if you get into that media. Liana x
