What else do I need to know? Is there anything I need to provide?
A selection of materials and basic equipment will be provided but you are expected to bring your own materials as the course progresses. The tutor will discuss materials at the first session but also a list of materials will be published on Canvas.
Course aim:
To provide an introduction to the principles of painting with a view to applying them in your own work and how practical art can help with wellbeing.
Course description:
The tutor will demonstrate various aspects of painting, covering areas such as skies, trees, water, etc. and development of tone, form, depth and colour mixing. With 1 to 1 tuition from the tutor the student can build up their own version of the painting. Mediums used will be watercolour and acrylic although students can use whatever medium they wish to use. Developing ones own painting is very much encouraged. As the course progresses, personal feelings about painting will develop and you will begin to see the world around you differently and your art will grow along with a sense of satisfaction, achievement and wellbeing. Meeting each week with others, friendships will develop. Students past and present have said that being able to 'switch off' for a couple of hours has benefitted them, taking their minds off 'other' issues and they find the sessions enjoyable, relaxing and rewarding.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. Improve my sketching ability and confidence.
2. Create depth in my painting to achieve results which are personally satisfying.
3. Create form in my painting, and self expression.
4. Improve my colour mixing.
5. Begin to see the world differently and find enjoyment and mindfulness through painting.
How will I learn?

We expect you to attend your classroom sessions and make time to do any required learning activities on your own.

The WEA tutor will use a range of teaching and learning activities and encourage you and the group to be actively involved in your learning. Your tutor will use tasks to see how you are learning, which may include quizzes, question and answer, small projects, discussion, written or practical work. Your tutor will give you feedback on your learning and progress.

WEA Canvas online learning area

Whether your course is face to face or online, the WEA uses its online learning area, called Canvas, to support your learning. This includes using Canvas to think about and record your progress and to give your tutor and the WEA feedback on your course.
