DEVELOP YOUR SKILLS.

 

COLOUR MIXING

If you want to develop the look of your artwork as you gain confidence, then the skill of colour mixing is one of the most important aspects of your success.

Understanding the science of colour mixing and the use of cool versus warm colours will help you create atmosphere in your work.

 

DEVELOPING A STYLE

Every Artist has a style, whether it has been discovered deliberately or purely by accident. Learn how to take aspects of your painting ability, and develop them, so that anyone who looks at a painting you have created, knows instinctively who the artist is behind the creation without looking for a signature.

 

UNDERSTANDING PAINT APPLICATION

Working hand in hand with developing a style of your own, this is the time to learn how to deepen your paintings with glazes, layering, Impasto techniques and special brushwork.

 

COMPOSITION

To truly succeed, even with the best techniques leant, knowing how to create or place a composition on paper or canvas will give you the chance to get people to not only look at your artwork, but linger for a while, to take everything in – and remember it afterwards maybe even purchase it

SPECIALIST SUBJECTS

 

BOTANICALS

The beauty of nature is best captured using the skills of Botanical Art. This is a whole Genre of its own, with its own rules and techniques. If you wish to pursue this subject successfully then this course teaches you the techniques you will need to succeed, from pencil drawing, stippling in Ink and using Watercolour as a way to bring your subjects to life.

 

ARCHITECTURE

The Art of Man has been to create buildings of beauty – from minimalist boxes through to the high details of Gothic and Venetian buildings that are artworks in their own right. Learning to translate these beautiful architectural pieces onto a flat piece of paper can be a challenge, and this course is designed to help you succeed with the portrayal of all constructions – anything from a country cottage to the Empire State Building.

 

TECHNIQUES OF THE MASTERS

Who is your favourite? Van Gogh? Cezanne? Turner? Picasso? They all created artwork that we have loved over the years, and some of their techniques are timeless.  If you want to learn how they applied their paint – from abstract to Cubist to Pontilism – then this course will help you.  Using a different style and time period each week, you will learn an overview of how art has developed over the centuries and practice paint application using the same techniques our favourite artists used in the time period they lived through.

 

Art Courses... 3 Hour session each week,  8 Weeks duration
