Our Art & Wine Evenings offer a fun, relaxed, creative night out in Edinburgh's fabulous city centre Georgian New Town, and are perfect for those who lack confidence with their drawing skills.
March's theme is 'Still Life' and will feature images by artists Van Gogh, Anne Redpath and the Scottish Colourists. With hands-on help from local artist Suzanne Kemplay, you will learn how to create your very own still life or landscape painting using acrylic paints, while enjoying a glass of wine and nibbles.
You don't have to be able to draw, so it's perfect for beginners as well as those who are new to using acrylic paints. And we think you'll be amazed at what you can achieve in one evening!
Our 2020 Art & Wine Evenings offer a range of themes to choose from including: Scottish Landscapes, Impressionists, Still Life, Figurative and Flowers. However, we can be flexible: if you really want to paint ‘Flowers’ and the date you're booking for is ‘Scottish Landscapes’ just let us know in advance of the class. Suzanne will provide a background to the artist's work, and support throughout the evening to help you make the most of your time.
No previous experience is needed. Images will already have been drawn out beforehand so you can get straight to work, and have fun playing with paint. Suzanne will talk you through the process showing you how to mix colours, and how to apply acrylic paint.
The price includes access to all the equipment you will need, all materials plus complimentary wine and nibbles. And of course you'll take home your finished painting to inspire you to continue painting at home!
