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. 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. Students will be working with pen and coloured inks and other drawing media. A range of subject matter will be available and students are welcome to bring their own.

The tutor will demonstrate various aspects of the painted landscape, 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 landscape. Medium used will be 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. You can see our tutors own paintings on 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'.
