Experiment with oil painting in this two day class with local artist Julia Pomeroy.

Learn different mark making techniques and explore the versatility of oil paint through a series of guided activities, including still life observational painting and studying from photographs.

Julia will also discuss her own practice, as well as sharing inspiration from different painters.

Focusing on colour and light, the class will have an informal, relaxed environment and encourage you to create vibrant and expressive paintings.


Suitable for both beginners and more experienced painters.

All materials are provided.

Julia Pomeroy is an oil painter from London, based in Leeds. She is currently a studio holder at Assembly House and is working towards a series of group exhibitions this summer. Through an ongoing exploration of colour and light, her figurative paintings create narratives featuring figures within architecturally interesting and psychologically charged spaces.
