Art for All View details

Art is a continuous, never-ending process of learning and discovery. Whatever art media you choose to work with, this course endeavours to help students to acquire certain basic skills and practices. On this course students will find an introduction to materials, equipment and techniques for drawing and painting. Working in different art media, students may learn about drawing materials, paper and canvases, brushes and painting knives and of course, how to paint. There will be simple exercises in painting techniques, which will lead students towards creating full compositions. Students will be encouraged and supported to develop their choices and to research and source their own subject matter, perhaps choosing to paint in a narrative style, reflecting personal experiences. Students can work from work sheets, printed images and photos. Students will be encouraged to study examples of paintings by both historical and current artists; to both inform and inspire.

With 1 to 1 tuition from the tutor the student can build up their own version of the landscape. 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. Tutor comment ; 'Many,many years ago a tutor told me I had 'A gift from God', an extraordinary compliment. Over the years I have had real pleasure from helping others and I also like to think that I am repaying my tutor for seeing this spark in me'.
