Is that you just back from the sunny end of Santa Ponza? Looking for a little mid week fun to jazz up this Scorchin’ Scottish Summer.
Well we’ve got it all going on this Thursday as we paint from Aljandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s jazzed up and exhilarating film “Birdman”

It keeps you on your toes this one. Cinematographer, Emmanuel Lubezki keeps us all in suspense presenting the story as one continuous, snaking take that never cuts away from the scenes.
These are excellent stills for understanding lighting and focus in particular. - to understand alternate lenses; how that influences the still and then how that influences the image we paint.

We also have phenomenal talent amongst us on Thursday night as we are joined by Lee from Flew the Arrow who will be down playing some sweet sweet instrumentals for us!

As ever we have a bring your own bottle policy. So, grab a tinny and park yourself down for a fun night of painting and great chat!

We encourage people to bring their own materials. We all have different personal tastes in terms of quality and method when it comes to painting. There is no one size fits all! It's important you work with a brand and material you are comfortable with. If you need any guidance on purchasing materials, and what is best for you please feel free to send us a message through our facebook page (link at bottom of page).

However , we also realise that this is an introduction to painting for many people so these can be provided.

Learning to draw from film stills is an amazing skill to develop. Increasingly, more and more artists work from photographs. Film stills give you access to quality formatted photography where every aspect of the image has been considered. It is a fascinating method of learning the technical devices of painting and drawing.
