Looking At You Zebra

Monday 30th May

Three Trees in Bletchley

Looking At You Zebra. Come to the The Three Trees in Bletchley and paint this striking Zebra as we continue with our animal theme.

It is amazing what you can do with some paint and brushes. Anyone can paint, you just need a desire said Bob Ross, so come to this great evening and show yourself you can. 

Tickets are from £32.00 downwards, and the ticket price includes ALL materials and equipment, and you will be able to purchase an optional frame for £10.00 if you want.

It doesn’t matter in the least if you haven’t picked up a paint brush for years, because you will walk away with your own unique piece of artwork. Our resident artist will take you, step-by-step, through the process of turning your blank canvas into an amusing picture that you can hang on your wall. With a glass in one hand, and a paintbrush (or a cotton bud) in the other, your skills will transfer painlessly to the canvas on your easel. So power up your inner Picasso and come and join us.

What You Will Learn

You’ll learn simple painting techniques that include dry-brushing to produce a dimensional effect around the face and body. You will also learn how to paint realistic eyes. For a full description see the MORE box below.
