Adult Art Workshop

Everyone has that special object that is almost like a treasure, it may carry precious memories or perhaps it was in your family for generations. It could be an engagement ring, earrings from your grandmother, embroidered coin pouch or an antique slipper. Whatever it is it will become your perfect subject matter for your painting. We will start this course with works on paper and use materials like pencils, pastels and watercolour. We will also go over a number of painting and drawing techniques that will include jewel, metal and other surface depictions. Your final work will be a painting executed in acrylics.

Sundays, (5weeks), 20 May - 24 June 18, 10:00 - 12:00 pm
Traditionally wooden surfaces were one of the most common ‘canvases’ for artists. Contemporary times offer a vast variety of surfaces for painters to work on but unprimed wooden panels and board are having a revival. So in this course we will create an art work on wood and use a wooden chopping board to create a beautiful and useful object. We will start this course by looking at traditional styles of decoration and then move onto more contemporary subjects.
