Practical Art Techniques

Ref: C2527618

The tutor will demonstrate various aspects of painting, covering areas such as skies,trees,water, etc. With development of tone, form 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. Developing ones own painting is very much encouraged. As the course progresses, personal feelings about the landscape around you will develop, you will see the world around you differently. This spark inside of you that makes you want to paint, will be kindled and, meeting each week with others who also have this spark, it will develop with friendships and your art will grow.

Course aim

To provide an introduction to the principles of painting with a view to applying them in your own work.

Do I need any particular skills or experience?

  • This course is for beginners and improvers
  • This course is for those people who have that spark inside their heart that makes them feel/want/need to paint.

By the end of the course I should be able to:

  • Improve my sketching ability.
  • Create depth in my painting.
  • Create form in my painting.
  • Improve my colour mixing.
  • To see the world differently
