Adult Art Workshop
Mondays, From 30th Oct - 27th Nov 2017, 7:00 - 9:00 pm (6 weeks)
If you would like to learn about colour, tone, shade and how they interact with each other this will be the class for you. We will start the course by working on paper with materials like charcoals, pencils and more. Following that we will use water mixable media such as watercolour and watercolour-pastels and then move onto the final work in acrylics. During the course you will learn how to create eye pleasing tonal combinations that can bring a feeling of calm and how to combine colours to create edgy contrast. This knowledge can be very helpful in your everyday life when you are choosing colours for your clothing, interior decorating and many others. The subject matter for this class is open so you can work on a landscape, still life or portrait.
