Try your hand at being creative and explore your art skills with us!
Each week will allow you to investigate painting and drawing practices with guidance and support of our art teacher. All art materials and tools are included in the course fee. Model will be provided for the last 3 weeks of the course.
You will learn how to get started painting easy landscape elements in acrylics. You will learn simple techniques for painting each of the elements that are important to painting good landscape paintings.
During this period, you will explore the fundamental approaches to making abstract art, developing your understanding of colours, gestures, scales, forms, shapes and lines.
Your creative ideas will evolve as you learn how to develop your ability using the simplicity and flow of this medium that is often used to give colour, form and life to an idea before a major work is created.
Each week will explore different themes to give participants a comprehensive set of strategies for working from the model. It will give learners the opportunity to study and work from the human figure and explore different mediums, materials and techniques.
