WHY IS THIS COURSE GOOD FOR YOUR ART?
In the context of general painting techniques and skills you will learn the following:-
In Abstract Painting, also known as Pure Painting, you cannot hide behind the distraction of a subject so the other painting skills become much more important; colour choices, colour balance, picture construction, harmony, mood, the value of mark making and how to apply paint in interesting ways.
On the Abstract Course we learn lots of interesting mark making techniques and layering. You can then work on one large painting, 2 smaller paintings or 6 small paintings. The smaller ones are good for beginners and ‘Abstract Explorers. If you are working on a large canvas you need to bring your own canvas and acrylic paints.
ABSTRACT PAINTING. ABOUT THE COURSE.
The 2 day course is suitable for complete beginners or those who would like to brush up on basic techniques. We start by creating a reference sketchbook of techniques, styles and ideas and then we paint a picture.
As with all our courses, the subject is a vehicle for learning different artistic skills that build our technical tool kit.
Materials are provided unless you are painting a large canvas. You then bring your own paints and canvas but brushes, knives and sketchbooks are provided.
The aim of this course is to cover many aspects of painting abstracts in order to give you knowledge, inspiration and techniques to help you create your own work. Playing with paint and experimenting and learning how to create effects are more important than taking home a polished painting.
I like to encourage you to develop your own style rather than follow a set, prescriptive style.
Suitable for complete beginners and those who have painted before and wish to rekindle their desire to paint again and brush up on the basic techniques. No drawing skills required.
Coffee, cake and a delicious home cooked, healthy lunch with wine are included.
Arrive from 9.30am, for coffee before a 10am start. The day finishes at 4.30pm.
