A new weekly art class will be starting Friday 22nd April, 10am – 12.30pm, £10 per session, payable as you attend.
This class will be suitable for both beginners and improvers and will offer the students a great learning experience whilst creating good social interaction in this tranquil rural location.
The long term aim of the class is to enable the students to become independent painters, to be able to sit in their gardens, on the beach/café/park and sketch/paint in their sketchbook with confidence and to develop their individual style. Initially some students may need more guidance than others, but each student will receive both group and 1:1 tuition at every session.
For the first 3 weeks of class we will work as a group from paintings produced by the tutor, in a variety of media – watercolour, ink & charcoal, acrylics. Weeks 4 to 6 will be working as a group, in any medium, from photographs provided by the students. After week 6 each student will use their preferred medium, aiming towards working from their own photograph or photographs provided by the tutor. As the term continues, we will develop painting techniques, colour mixing, drawing and observation skills whilst learning how to be selective with compositions. You will gain the confidence to paint directly from life outdoors (weather dependent) and to work directly from still life inside the craft centre.
The venue offers ample free off road parking with disabled access and facilities.
