Creative Painting for Beginners is an exciting course that will stimulate your creativity and teach you how to use acrylic paint through a variety of different techniques. It is an opportunity to develop your own personal painting style and create paintings with real meaning to you as well as exploring the medium of paint and understanding it’s potential.
The tutor will lead you to draw on inspiration from many other artists’ work and will guide you step by step through the stages of developing your own artwork. The course will cover exciting topics and exercises such as:
– Line and tone
– Colour and imagination
– Application of paint
– Painting from photographs
– Painting a still life
– Painting the figure using a life model
– Composition and abstraction
The tutor will lead a mind map exercise, to encourage students to create their own personal painting project. By exploring other artists’ works for inspiration, there will be time for discussion and trying out different techniques in your work. You will spend time in the last few weeks developing a finished painting, and building on the new skills you have acquired from the course. This course would be perfect for someone new to painting, or a beginner with some experience looking to explore different styles. There are several appropriate follow on courses including Painting the Figure, Abstract Painting and Painting Outdoors, depending on your area of interest.
