The first course of Weekly Evening Classes starts at the beginning of May. It’s a 6-week painting course and you can look forward to a relaxed and sociable weekly painting session to help you improve your painting skills. These classes were popular last year and hugely enjoyed by those who attended.
What to expect on the course:
Relaxed & sociable weekly evening sessions that will run over a 6 week ‘term’ to help you improve your painting whatever your starting point.
You will gain a range of painting skills, an understanding of different materials, techniques and concepts, and build confidence with your own paintings.
Clear instruction with demos, along with practical exercises and learning through experimentation using acrylics or mixed media.
NB: Suitable for adults of all ability. All that’s needed is a willingness to learn and have fun!
OVER THE 6 WEEKS YOU WILL LEARN ABOUT:
Why mark making matters!
Tonal structure. The most critical element for successful paintings.
Using colour effectively
Composition & design elements
Layering & texture
The importance of edges
Evaluating your own work so you can improve
Finding your style
(And other topics that may arise depending on the groups needs!)
All the basic materials and equipment are provided but if you have your own items you would particularly like to use, and/or a personal sketchbook, then feel free to bring them with you.
Complimentary tea/coffee available throughout each session
