Through this course you will explore what it is about painting that motivates and inspires you. You will be encouraged to develop a more informed approach to painting, exploring ways to develop ideas from research material, to refine your ideas, develop coherent work, and apply skills and techniques needed to further your practice. 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 of starting a painting, working from sketches, memory and photos. You will then go on to explore your own subject matter, guided step by step through the stages of developing your own painting.
