Which course should I start with?
Well it really depends on what you want to learn about. Jobys first virtual course was Learn About Letters, covering the basics of all things letters. Swiftly following this course came Fancy Letters, taking the skills learnt from the Learn About Letters course and adding a bit of fancy to them. Brush Strokes leads on nicely from this where Joby covers correct brush use and hints and tips of things he has learnt along the way. Fairground Art, the course all about art on the fair, the history of it and how to recreate it. Coach Painting is perfect for those of you that have a restoration project on the go or for those who just want to see how we create our mirror finishes and learn how to to this yourselves.

The courses are held online live from Joby’s paintshop using online live streaming services via your computer, phone or tablet.

What Our Students Say:
The course was very helpful and informative, with a fantastic paint shop to work in- a really lively environment with lots of interesting stuff going on around you. Joby was absolutely fantastic, as was the whole yard with it’s legion of painters going about their work.
I could not recommend this highly enough and a massive thankyou to everybody who made it such a worthwhile experience. You’ll learn a lot in a relatively short space of time, have good opportunity to put it into practice and be set up well to continue with it when you leave.
