HILARY PAGE WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
THE WORKSHOPS:

Hilary Page Workshops are energizing, inspiring and crammed full of information and painting time.

They are for participants of all levels- the experienced are challenged and beginners are shown what they need to know to get started. Each, according to his or her skill, will attain new heights of achievement while developing an individual vision and style. With Hilary's encouraging way of teaching and under her careful guidance, participants invariably emerge from the workshops feeling renewed and refreshed.

The workshops feature short demonstrations- enough to illustrate the topic under study, as well as some longer ones. Generous hand outs are given to further explain the lesson.

Hilary's insightful and supportive critiques round off each project. The workshops start promptly at the appointed time both in the morning and afternoon and are usually for five days, though they can be for more or less days.

Workshops are on five different topics.
