Painting & Drawing for Everyone.

On Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday and Thursday mornings:

I run friendly mixed ability art classes where you will learn about drawing and painting. This year we will be covering various subject matters including figure drawing, figures in settings i.e. a park, a canal scene, a beach and bonfire night. We will also be exploring colour. Other subjects that we will cover this year are flowers, still life, buildings and landscapes. The subjects will all involve drawing including line, perspective and tone. Painting including colour mixing, different techniques i.e. wet-in-wet, dry brushing, glazing, underpainting, etc. You will use different media including chalk pastels, watercolour paints, and acrylic paints. Weather permitting, in the summer term we will do some sketching and composition work outside at different locations. You will receive lots of guidance and step by step tuition from me. For complete beginners or improvers, everyone is welcome.

On Tuesday morning:

This year we will begin the first term with drawing using mixed media. The subjects we will cover include: Still life, animals, landscapes, and flowers. The drawing practice will help improve hand-eye coordination and give you practice in measuring proportions and obtaining correct angles and give you an understanding of perspective. You will also learn about the relationship between different tonal values in monochrome and colour and how this is used to create depth. You will also experiment with mark making to produce different textures. You will also use watercolours to paint snow scenes including shadows on snow, snowy mountains and sheep in snow.

You will use a variety of media including colouring pencils, chalk pastels, oil pastels and watercolour paints.

Later on in the year we will do some watercolour painting, gouache and mixed media. We will cover a variety of techniques and subject matters including different buildings and street scenes, still life subjects including fruit, teasles and flowers.
