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 thoughts and ideas, and develop your own original work. Classes will include plenty of 'hands on' painting practise with individual help from the tutor.
Enrich your paintings with scintillating colours using acrylics and soft pastels
During the spring course we will explore how to use colour in a creative and expressive manner, taking inspiration from paintings by present-day American artists. There will be the opportunity to work directly from real life subjects; flowers will be provided for a still life project; and a life model will pose during two of the sessions (a small additional charge will be requested to cover the model's fee).
