Activity description

This drawing and painting class is for all levels and is run by a friendly, fun professional artist who can provide you with encouragement and tips and techniques to improve your creativity, regardless of how confident you are in drawing or painting. The tutor is essentially a portrait artist, but with a passion for paper, colours, lines and shapes. There are so many ways to make fabulous art outwith the conventional methods, and the tutor is looking forward to helping you experiment and have fun with assorted media! ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: No formal entry requirements. All levels welcome. WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: Drawing and painting techniques will be taught using a variety of different media such as charcoal, pen and ink, acrylic paints, pastels and collage. By the end of the course students will have learned to: - confidently use media and techniques that they have not used before; - improve their drawing and/or painting skills; - develop an understanding of tone, contrast, colour and composition; and - work from a variety of subject matter. We will not be covering watercolour techniques in this class. GENERAL APPROACH TO THE COURSE: The exercises developed for this course interact and overlap and are designed to build on each other. They are accessible to all levels and allow everyone to develop at their own pace. Students will be asked to work from still life set ups, masters’ drawings and paintings and towards the end of the course their own reference material. Advice will be given on using different media and art techniques. MATERIALS REQUIRED BY STUDENTS; APPROXIMATE/ADDITIONAL COST: Basic materials will be provided but students are encouraged to buy their own so they can continue painting and drawing at home. The tutor can advise about best outlets and brands.
