Developing Your Style – Painting TechniquesCourse Code: EC2204029 Tutor: Kinga Markus Course Dates: Thursdays 6th July - 24th August Days: 8 Times: 6.15pm - 8.45pm Experience Level: Intermediate Fee: £250 Location: Art Academy London, 165A Mermaid Court, SE1 1HR From: £250.00
This course focuses on developing each student’s style of painting, both through pushing creative expression and refining technical ability. By working from the model, and by developing with a creative project, students will explore multiple ways of using paint to convey a certain message or feeling.
In the first part of the course students will be working from the figure, developing core painting skills whilst also reflecting on their use of paint. Working with oil and/or acrylic paints students will develop a series of artworks, from quick sketches to longer more developed pieces. Focus will be on developing expressive paintings that through their specific use of colour, composition and brushwork, have something to say about the human figure. This will be informed by looking at different ways other artists have used paint to achieve a certain result.
In the second part of the course students will work on a personal creative project. Students will be guided step by step through the process of developing an idea, collecting source material and references, experimenting with different techniques and approaches, before the final execution. By looking at contemporary and historical artists, and through dialogue with the group, students will develop their creative and critical awareness. This course would be a great follow on from the Intermediate Painting or Figure and Portrait Painting.

As well as being very informative, this course is great fun and offers the fantastic opportunity to paint in and around the landscape of London Bridge. The Art Academy is just a short stroll from all sorts of exciting locations that could become a focus of a painting; the Thames, the Tate, Borough Market, Tower Bridge, St Paul’s, the shard, building sites and lots of small gardens. The majority of this course will be based outdoors painting on site, although there will be a studio available for use if the weather prevents us from working outdoors. You will learn techniques of tone, colour, atmosphere, composition, perspective, as well as how to be organised and efficient with materials when working out and about. The course culminates in the studio developing a more ambitious painting working from sketches or photos.
