Masterclasses

In depth live and interactive online courses with group critique and the option to rewatch on demand

About Our Masterclasses 
If you're interested in learning oil painting skills at your own pace, Masterclasses are here to help. 

 

Our Masterclasses are delivered as three-part courses. You can attend the live sessions and interact with Martin via Zoom, watch the recorded sessions for up to 60 days, or blend your learning method to suit your lifestyle. This allows you to study at your own pace and fit it into your schedule. Each course is designed to be easy to follow, with structured stages and helpful demonstrations. By taking part in a masterclass, you'll gain valuable insights and develop practical skills that you can use to take your oil painting to the next level.

Each course has three scheduled classes, which you can watch live and interactive via Zoom or on demand ( for 60 days) as you prefer. To take part, simply book the class below; the scheduled dates for each lesson are in the specific course info. Zoom links will be sent out to the email address you booked with. 

At £250 ( £175 for StudioTalk members ) The MasterClasses are great value, especially for our members, as they include three fully interactive live 90 minute classes, a dedicated private Facebook Group to post your work up for group critique, and the bonus of watching, rewatching and painting while you learn for 60 days after the last class has been broadcast; ample time to revisit your course group and get informed feedback.
