On the Abstract Painting Course you will paint a canvas

On the Painting 6 Abstract Paintings on Paper course beginners and ‘abstract explorers’ have a chance to play with abstract painting within the context of guided themes and colour schemes with a wide range of materials provided.

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.  

You bring your own paints and canvas for this course 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.
