This is an exciting course that will stimulate your creativity and teach you how to use paint through a variety of different techniques. It is an opportunity to develop your own personal painting style and create paintings with real meaning to you as well as enjoying exploring the medium of paint’s full potential.
The tutor will lead you to draw on inspiration from many other artists’ work and will guide you step by step through the stages of developing your own artwork. The course covers basic painting techniques such as line, tone, understanding colour as well as the application of paint. It also explores more expressive methods through simple exercises focusing on composition, abstraction and working with the figure. You will spend time in the last few weeks developing a finished painting, using techniques you have developed over the duration of the course.
