The ‘Beginners Painting Class’ ran from July the 18th through to July the 22nd with Raúl Miyar, full time Fine Arts teacher at the Altos de Chavón School of Art and Design. Here Raúl explains a little about the 1 week course: “The class was offered as a basic painting course for those who had little or no experience with the medium. However, a couple of our recent graduates and some other Altos de Chavón students, who had just finished their first year also signed up for the course – which made it a very interesting group with a range of painting abilities. The advanced students worked on independent projects while the beginner students all worked on specific assignments that were part of the course curriculum. Having the advanced students working alongside the beginners, turned out to be very beneficial, as the work of the advanced students served as examples and inspiration and of course those with more experience were more than happy to give their help and advice to those just learning.  As you can see from the photos, the results were extremely positive and I hope to do the same again in the future!” The photos below are examples of the students work produced over the 1 week course: Inspired to get creative?
