Wednesday morning Inspired Painting class
Learning from the methods of recognized artists
This course is suitable for people with some basic painting experience. It is ideal for those that enjoy experimenting with new techniques or for anyone that would like to learn more about different methods of painting. It can help to provide a sense of direction for people that have not yet found their own painting style.
The course will be divided into 2 separate projects; at the start of each topic we will take inspiration from a well-known artist's work; a brief introduction about the artist will be given and some relevant painting techniques will be demonstrated. Projects will be flexible, allowing you to introduce your own ideas and sources of inspiration. Classes will include plenty of 'hands on' painting practise with individual help from the tutor.
Create loose lively paintings in soft pastel and watercolour
During the spring course we will take inspiration from paintings by present-day British artists. Discover how to portray the human form using bold pastel mark-making and explore ways of capturing landscapes in a loose watercolour style. There will be the opportunity to work directly from real life subjects; for two sessions we will have a life model to pose for the class (an additional charge of £2 per session will be requested to cover the model's fee). There should also be the possibility of painting outdoors from the local landscape, weather permitting!
