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.

Working Safely

We have made some changes to ensure everyone feels confident and safe to come and join in without fear of catching Coronavirus. Our courses are running with fewer participants and a larger space to allow plenty of room for social distancing. In line with government guidance we are also requesting that students attend with a mask or face covering.

We hope that being able to immerse yourself with something creative will help to restore a sense of wellbeing and hopefulness as we navigate the ‘new normal’.

If you have any concerns or specific requirements regarding attending a course please feel free to get in touch with us by emailing info@the-arthouse.org.uk.

Workshop and course bookings can be cancelled and refunded up until 7 days before the scheduled start date. Our workshops support the work we do as a charity, and because materials and equipment are ordered in advance, we regret that refunds cannot be offered less than 7 days before the workshop date. Please note that Eventbrite’s booking fee is non-refundable.

We can offer the option to transfer to another course or transfer your ticket to a friend or relative in the event that you can’t attend due to Covid-19.

In the event that The Art House needs to cancel a workshop for any reason, for example due to tutor illness or if lockdown measures are put back in place your ticket will be refunded in full.
