3- week online "How to paint your dog" LIVE
Join Sam for the LIVE online 3-week "how to paint your dog" course
Not everyone can travel to my in-person workshops so every so often I create a live online version of my workshops. This is a mix of pre-recorded lessons, homework assignments, feedback and live painting together.
As well as the video lessons and live paint-a-longs, Sam is able to digitally paint over a photograph of your painting at its current stage to nudge you in the right direction and give you specific advice for your breed. She will send you a video of next steps and written tips too.
The pre-start recorded videos will be available from 7th March
