Activity description

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: No formal entry requirements. Students should have some experience in Oil Painting. LEARNING OUTCOMES: By the end of the course students will have learned/be able to: - handle Oil Paint, solvents, brushes, palette knives etc with confidence; - improve painting skills; - develop an understanding of tone, contrast, colour and composition; - been introduced to a variety of subject matter; - understand how best to express and interpret the chosen subject using a range of tools. HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT: Demonstrations followed by group and individual discussion and guidance MATERIALS REQUIRED BY STUDENT; APPROXIMATE & ADDITIONAL COSTS: For the first class, please bring oil related materials they already have eg brushes, oil paint and oil painting paper/support eg canvas, primed board, plus small jars with lids, and rags. Also bring odourless thinner, for example, Gamlin: Gamsol Odeourless Mineral spirit or Windsor Newton low odour spirit. {Aromatic solvents are harmful}. Pencil and paper is always useful for preliminary sketches and notes. Paintings can’t be stored in the classroom so a large pizza box and blue tak or similar is useful for carrying. Students may wish to wait until the class commences to purchase any further materials such as oil paints that have been modified to be used with water and also to confirm viability of class. Also discount can be obtained from certain suppliers on production of class receipt. NB: There is very limited parking available at this venue, particularly when school events are taking place.
