This is an inspiring and productive course for all levels of experience. A fun time set in a chilled out relaxed and creative environment. Get stuck in and learn something new each week and then build on it the next week. This course will be based on traditional painting techniques with some contemporary approaches applied to the genre.

As well as covering a lot of ground, equally the focus will be on developing a solid understanding of colour theory, tonal relationships, proportion, and composition. Progressing to use these ideas to develop believable 3d forms on a 2d surface.

Thursday Afternoons over 4 weeks. 18th June to 9th July. 1 – 3.30pm.

Bring Paper towels or cotton rags with you. Basic starting materials are supplied, guidance on any other purchases will be given during the course You are more than welcome to bring your own paints and brushes.
