This is an exciting course which helps you discover what it is about painting that motivates and inspires you. The aim of this course is to teach students how to develop ideas from initial sketches, refinement of ideas through to developing coherent work, as well as developing skills and techniques that you need to develop your practice. Students will be encouraged to adopt a disciplined creative thinking dialogue in their painting practice which will enable a more informed approach to their work. The class is structured for beginners whilst also being open for more advanced students who perhaps have a clearer vision of what they want to achieve. The course begins by looking at different ways into starting a painting, working from sketches, memory and photos. It then goes on to explore your own subject matter where you will be guided step by step through the stages of developing your own painting. You will have the opportunity to develop your technical knowledge and to progress your vision as an artist.
