Course Overview

Course Overview
The course explores acrylic painting in combination with wet and dry media. Some experience with art making is recommended however, step-by-step demonstrations are provided throughout for all abilities to follow.

The course covers both representational and expressive abstract art making. It will cover practices combining; acrylic, charcoal, acrylic mediums, gesso, pen and inks and/or conte/pastels.

Tuition will include discussion based on six core principles: the perception of edges, spaces, relationships, light and dark, expression, and the 'Whole'.

Instruction will be given on perspective, portrait and figures, expressive and representational art-making. Exploring various themes from the animal world, nature, landscape, seascapes, people, and buildings.

The course will begin with Acrylic Techniques with Gesso.

As the course progresses additional media will be introduced so art materials can be built up over time.

You will be sent regular information via email for the media and theme, with advice on where to purchase additional materials prior to each project.

Projects will begin with drawing practice and exploring techniques to prepare you for the art making. Followed by full demonstrations for each stage making the artwork.

Projects are spread over 1-3 weeks to give you plenty of time to complete each artwork.
