Dare to Oil Paint: Beginner's Oil Painting
Reviewed by Anonymous on 4/2/2020
Absolutely loved this course. Chris was a really great tutor. He gave you the space to paint and then was there to guide, advise, encourage and suggest techniques to enrich your work. My son and myself stated the class in the studio but due to the Virus we had to shift classes to on line. The class didn’t skip a beat! Well done for making this so seamless. I will definitely be back for more!
