Acrylic and oil painting classes for beginners, and learners with experience, who wish to broaden their knowledge and painting techniques. Please note we also offer a full one-week Painting in Oils and Acrylic Summer Short Course.
This course will cover the basic painting techniques and range from colour, line, tone and the application of paint.
We will explore how the subject of personal identity can be reflected within a still life or landscape and participants will be encouraged to develop their own creative style. Still life set-ups, photographs and found images will provide reference material and the latter half of the course will focus on a personal art project culminating in a finished painting on canvas.
Both acrylic and oil techniques will be covered, but participants will be encouraged to use acrylics as the quick-drying nature of this medium lends itself more effectively for transportation.
For the first session, bring with you a selection of personal objects (minimum of three) to create your very own still life.
