Classes / Workshops

“I am delighted to announce new Oil Painting classes for 2023. The venue, New Longton Village Hall, is really well equipped and I can’t wait to get back to the creative buzz of the classroom.”

Norman Long

Whether you want to learn Oil Painting from scratch or brush up on your existing skills, Norman’s Oil Painting courses will inspire your journey. As an experienced, qualified teacher and author of a popular book (Oil Painting for the Complete Beginner) Norman is able to demystify the process of creating great oil paintings right from the start. 

No matter what our skill level, we can all improve our fundamentals of drawing, colour and composition. Yet it’s important to engage in fresh challenges, so Norman redesigns the course each semester so that students of all levels remain stimulated and challenged.

You will be encouraged to develop your own approach to subject matter and technique. The emphasis is on individual advice tailored to the needs and experience of each artist.

There are two courses to choose from, both starting on 27th Jan 2023:

Exploring Colour in Oils – Part One




New Longton Studio Days
