Activity description

HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT: Practical indications and ongoing demonstrations in Seascape, Landscape (including urban), trees and still-life. The emphasis is on flexibility as well as learning new skills with group and individual guidance and opportunity to develop your own style. We paint rather than photographic style copying. As the weather warms up we sketch outside and develop these into paintings back at the classroom MATERIALS REQUIRED BY STUDENT; APPROXIMATE & ADDITIONAL COSTS: Thick (min 200gsm) lining paper (wallpaper) or A2 cartridge paper; colour A2 sugar paper (from A3scrapbooks), masking tape; thick willow charcoal; white chalk; ordinary rubber; colour chalk pastels; TUBES of Red, Yellow, Blue and White acrylic paints; large (1cm) FLAT bristle brushes (mostly available from The Works and other discount stores); cheap hair spray (Supermarket). This can all be built up gradually for approx. £15 and the tutor will discuss what to get and where to save money. You can also experiment with other materials. Bring what you can to first class
