About the Classes
Join Kirsten in her Denmark studio for Sunday morning oil painting sessions. Work at your own pace with guidance and support when you need it. Kirsten will be available to assist you one-on-one with aspects of planning your painting, achieving effects, composition, colour mixing, mediums, brushes, paint layering and glazing techniques.
