New! Tuition Channels - our proven studio courses direct to your device.  

Since 2007 Simply Oils has been our signature studio course for artists wishing to learn oils or transition to them from another medium.


As we all need to work and study from home we've put together special 120 minute live interactive demonstrations to show you everything you need to start oils the right way, in three easy to join sessions, which you can take in any order to top up your existing skills.

The sessions cover everything from getting the right paints, through the core classical skills which enable you to exploit the things that only oil does, to professional colour mixing and the best process you can learn for reliably creating professional paintings rather than hoping your work comes together each day.  


It's the complete 'how to' from professional oil painters which will save you hours of frustration and ensure you don't waste money on buying expensive kit you don't need.

Once you have booked your place, you will receive an email with your zoom link and another to gain a password to a Simply Oils Members Area, where you can download your core notes, reference images and materials list. 


Our fully interactive interactive lectures cover everything you need to know, and unlike a pre recorded video allow you to ask questions to ensure you fully understand the information on offer. This lecture is broadcast LIVE via zoom with limited numbers, to replicate the inhouse school studio experience. Please note, this video is not repeated on demand, so make sure you don't miss out live! 

At £50 per session, you get the full tuition of a studio based Simply Oils course (normally £399), meaning you can have the tuition sessions and demonstrations, plus the materials you need from the School shop, for around the cost of Simply Oils Studio Workshop!
