This is an exciting course, which aims to help you discover what it is about painting that really inspires you. It is a great follow-on course from our Painting for Beginners series or Creative Painting for Beginners and will also suit you if you already have some basic experience of painting and want to take your skills to the next level.
The course structure is designed in a progressive sequence from beginning to end, with specific exercises following on from previous sessions. Although we appreciate that you might miss some of the classes due to other commitments, this particular course will be experienced at its very best if all or most lessons are attended.
You will explore the following subjects:
– Tone, usng black and white
– Still Life, colour study
– Portraiture, tonal and colour
– Self Portrait
– Painting a still life using a palette knife
– Exploring mark making
– Working from photographs
– Development of a personal project
The course begins by developing your core painting skills, exploring line, tone, colour and mass, whilst continually pushing your creative expression. The tutor will lead you to draw inspiration from many other artist’s work and will guide you step by step through the stages of developing your own painting. You will engage with the subject matters and styles that excite you and the tutor will assist you in bringing them into your own artworks. By looking at a broad variety of techniques, materials and styles, the course aims to broaden your ability to express yourself in paint.
After completing this course, we recommend joining one of our Painting Masterclasses to further develop your style.
“The course had a good tutor who also encouraged us to socialise over the 11 weeks.”
