Come along for a creative and relaxing day painting a rusty Chevrolet. I will show you how to paint the car with a step by step demonstration. I explain my process and show you various techniques and methods for the painting. I will also provide tips and tricks for using different brushes and paints.
You will be able to paint the project and I will give individual guidance and encouragement.
You will produce a finished painting of the car to take home along with printed guidance notes, photograph and an outline sketch of the car which you can trace or draw free hand.
One of the great things about attending a demonstration is that you can see the techniques being used in real-time and ask questions during the demonstration.
The workshop will start at 10am and we finish at 3.30pm. I encourage attendees to arrive 15 minutes prior to the commencement of the workshop ie 9.45am.
