Beginner’s Drawing & Painting,  6 week course, 10-1pm.
9th January – 13th February 2020 

Future term dates of all 6 week courses: 19th March-7th May/ 4th June -9th July.

A small and friendly art class suitable for complete beginners.

Over the course of the term you will learn how to use materials, how to observe and record accurately from a still life. With lots of demonstrations and one to one you will build confidence and be led through the creation of drawings and paintings based on the theme of the term.

Over the year the topics covered are mark-making, drawing from observation, the still life, perspective, colour theory, printmaking, portraiture, and plein air painting.

You will need an A3 sized sketch book (hard backed with a spine please so you can work across two pages). Aprons and hot refreshments are provided. On your first term you will learn what materials to buy and how to use them. You will be expected to bring your own brushes and paints  from the second term but all materials are provided during demonstrations.

This is a very popular course so please book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Parking is just outside The Colour Factory in the River Park Leisure Centre.
