Frequently asked questions

Do we need to bring materials?

All brushes and materials are provided. However, you are welcome to bring your own brushes if you wish. We will be using water-based oils.

Where will we be working?

Weather permitting, Part 2 involves painting outdoors in St James’s Park. Please dress for rain or shine. Bring water and sun lotion, and wear comfortable shoes, for considerable walking. 

Do I need to attend Part 1 to attend Part 2?

These are stand-alone sessions. It is not essential to have attended Part 1 to enjoy Part 2, but it is recommended, and beginners may find this particularly beneficial.
