7 Week course on Drawing/Expressive watercolour/Acrylics

Starts Monday 18th September 2017

The course will help you to develop your drawing skills focusing on botanical form and working from observation. You will learn how to use watercolour in a more expressive style, as well as using mixed media techniques to embellish your work. The latter part of the course will show you how to use acrylic paint confidently.

Monday 18th September: The first session will focus on tonal shading and mark making.

Monday 25th September: The second session will focus on using chalk pastels, blending and mixing of colours to create depth and detail.

Monday 2nd October: The third session will focus on using watercolour and a fine liner. You will draw with a large paintbrush which will enable you to become more expressive.

Monday 9th, 16th, 23rd & 30th October: The final 4 sessions will focus on creating an acrylic painting of a cockerel. You will be shown how to create a wash for the background, tonal properties and how to apply this medium to your canvas. I will go through a step by step method, demonstrating each new technique. All abilities welcome; particularly suited to beginners. All materials will be supplied apart from the acrylic paint. This course needs a minimum of 6 people per session to go ahead.

Each session costs £15 to cover room hire, tuition and materials. You can sign up to all 7 for a discounted price of £100 or only the ones you want to attend.
