Painting & drawing (beginners) (5 days)
At the start of the week we’ll coach in drawing basics: you’ll receive guidance on scale, tone, composition and perspective. You’ll get to use a variety of drawing mediums including pencil, charcoal and inks. Throughout the week you’ll be encouraged to then use your drawing skills in the planning of paintings,
You’ll also be taught the fundamentals of oils and acrylics about colour mixing and layering, equipment and materials needed, how to prepare painting surfaces as well as learning professional hints and tips that will really advance your learning.
We’ll be working from still life at the start of the week. By day 2/3 you’ll start to determine your own subject/project and stylistic approach. Towards the end of the week. we’ll include a taster session working from the model.
This is a practical course and you’ll be encouraged to develop skills from the start. You’ll be coached by experienced artists/tutors who will help you discover and draw out your own developing style.
