Welcoming students of all ages and abilities, artist C J Elsip combines a versatile, inspirational and intuitive approach with an extensive variety of effective drawing and painting techniques, encouraging you to stretch the boundaries of both creative medium and mind to discover, explore and develop your own personal, creative language. 

Through hands on demonstration and individual guidance, discover time-honored, traditional and experimental drawing and painting techniques as you are guided on a fascinating creative journey of light, color, composition and depth. C J Elsip specialises in oil painting, but is experienced in a wide range of materials, so you can also work in acrylic, watercolour as you wish. 


Choose your own subject matter, medium, palette and painting ground in this class. C J Elsip will guide and advise you step-by-step through planning, use of materials, colour mixing and ultimately creating your very own masterpieces in your own unique style.
