Adult Art Workshop
Mondays, From 26th Feb - 2nd April 2018, 7:00 - 9:00 pm (6 weeks)
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.
Term 1 Children's Classes
Saturdays, From 24th Feb - 24th March 2018, 10:00 - 12.00pm (5 weeks)
In this class you will learn many different techniques for creating drawings and paintings of the most beautiful sunsets from the different corners of the world, such as the dramatic colours of Pacific sunsets or foggy sunsets of Asia, sparkling sunsets of the Arctic and sunsets in the middle of the ocean. You will study the contrast between light and shade with the use of ink, charcoals, pencils and other materials. We will also work with watercolour and pastels for colour studies. The final painting will be a beautiful acrylic work ready to hang on the wall portraying a landscape lit up with colours of the setting sun.
Sundays, From 25th Feb - 25th March 2018 10:00 - 12:00pm (5 weeks)
In this class we will focus on creating more space and depth in your artworks with the use of glass. Your final work will be an almost ‘theatrical stage’ painting with layers of glass that incorporates painted areas. During the course we will intensely focus on things like linear and areal perspective as well as brush up our one post perspective knowledge. We will start with sketches on paper and use pencils, pastels, watercolour and other media to practice and then plan and create a final work which will be based around landscape.
