Artist Julia Pomeroy leads this five week life painting course.

Beginning with timed exercises to study proportions and a range of poses, the course progresses to experiment with colour combinations, light and dark contrasts and a range of mark making techniques.

Learn to experiment with form, figure and layering, and explore the versatility of oil paint.

Through these guided sessions, you’ll produce a final oil painting to take home.


Suitable for both beginners and more experienced painters.

All materials are provided.

Julia Pomeroy is an oil painter from London, based in Leeds. She is currently a studio holder at Assembly House and is working towards a series of group exhibitions. Through an ongoing exploration of colour and light, her figurative paintings create narratives featuring figures within architecturally interesting and psychologically charged spaces.
