DRAWING AND PAINTING TECHNIQUES CLASS
Drawing and Painting Techniques Classes Birmingham
Join artist Peter Tinkler on a Thursday evening for some relaxed drawing and painting techniques in the beautiful surroundings of St Paul’s church in the Jewellery Quarter. Students can choose to sign up for 4, 8, or 12 weeks, and the classes are suitable for beginners, intermediate, or advanced. Each week we’ll look at a new medium, step-by-step, in an informal, fun atmosphere. Techniques such as drawing with pencil, charcoal, pastel, and ink will be explored, demonstrating how different marks can create texture and depth. Painting mediums such as acrylic and watercolour will be introduced, showing students a variety of brushes and their effects, on themes ranging from portraits, landscapes, still life’s and much more. Students can go at their own pace, individual advice and tips are given, and all materials are provided with the exception of an A3 sketch/painting pad.
Hot drinks are available, along with free parking on the grounds of the venue.
The maximum spaces on this course is 12, so make sure you reserve your space soon to avoid disappointment.

Art Courses Birmingham Testimonials
This course was a lifesaver for me and provided a wonderful opportunity to develop my oil painting skills. The expert instruction and demonstration delivered with such ease by Peter made the whole experience so enjoyable. Too much information I will need to enrol on a future course to process this one! Thank you Peter.
I wanted to draw and paint all my life, particularly as this was not part of school in India at the time! So I waited until I retired and joined Peter’s class. I have had the opportunity to try different mediums and techniques. I even dared to draw in a museum setting with Peter’s encouragement. I have enjoyed learning and continue to do so because the atmosphere in the class is very informal and relaxed. I never thought I would be able to draw and paint but with Peter’s help, I am thoroughly enjoying it. Peter is a passionate, interested teacher
Dr. Prema Iyengar
I have been doing lessons with Peter for over one year. Learning with him is quite fun but effective at the same time. Although he plans the topic for each lesson, he is quite flexible and allows people to go at their own pace. He is also happy for students to develop their own work during lessons if they prefer
I have been attending classes with Peter for three years. I have vastly improved my painting in that time. He draws on the positives of what you paint and builds your confidence. He also comments on how to improve. He makes the class interesting by setting various themes; paintings styles from different cultures or painting in the style of a particular artist. His classes are engaging and very interesting – he encourages us to explore different painting techniques and helps develop your own style of painting. He is a very enthusiastic tutor and passionate about his craft and keen to share his knowledge with students.
