The course will cover paint handling, colour mixing, warm & cool, tints and shades, modelling form, a wet into wet technique, layering and manipulating the paint. Subjects will include still life, portrait and landscape, contextualised with artist examples.
The course will show you how to mix colours effectively and under the guidance of your tutor your confidence in using oils and acrylics will grow. Students will have the opportunity to paint a variety of surfaces, study a range of subject and compositions and achieve a better understanding of oil painting.
Acrylic paints (Daler-Rowney System 3 are a good choice), brushes, flat palette, cartridge paper/pad, watercolour paper. Acrylic painting paper is not essential and canvas optional. If in doubt wait until your first class where your tutor can explain and show examples.
Continuous informal assessment through observation, group and individual discussion and comment.
