Wednesdays, starts 22 April
£95 per personBook Now
Explore drawing and painting on this six week course for those in the early stages of their artistic journey. The course will cover still life, portrait and landscape subjects and you will be given step by step instructions in a wide range of drawing and painting techniques.
You will start by exploring basic drawing techniques from reference to still life objects, gradually introducing tone and colour to create a still life painting. Portraiture will focus on proportions of the face before developing a portrait in paint and/or pastels. Landscape subjects will be used to explore painting in more depth, allowing for more freedom of expression through depicting light, weather and seasons.
By the end of the course participants will have a better knowledge of drawing and painting techniques and a growing sense of their individual style and strengths in preparation for further development.
