This course offers a relaxed and stimulating environment to continue building key painting skills and to explore different creative responses to the human figure by working from a model each week and with a variety of models over the duration of the course. Using acrylics or oil paints, you will be supported to make quick paint sketches and longer more developed works, to grow your skills and confidence with composition, seeing tonal values, colour mixing and paint application. The course will include nude and clothed poses and take inspiration from a range of references by historical and contemporary artists painting the figure. Your tutor will give practical demonstrations and guidance throughout the sessions and will encourage each student with their individual painting journey.
This course is ideal if you have enjoyed a beginners course in either oil painting or acrylics and are looking to consolidate on the skills you have learned so far and build your confidence with observational and creative painting.
