This course offers six places maximum in socially distanced work spaces. Suitable for beginners and anyone wanting to improve their creativity, expand their general art knowledge and try some new techniques - all materials & equipment (except brushes) provided. WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING This is a varied painting and drawing course which focuses on creativity, observation, energy, colour and light. You'll get the chance to spend time developing your art skills throughout the 15 weeks as we play with the following broad topics: THE HUMAN FACE & PORTRAITURE You may feel this is a tough one to begin with but do not fear, I'll take you through it pace by pace as we explore the foibles of the human face before working on a self portrait. You'll learn a great deal about observation of form and colour which will stand us all in good stead for taking on our next subject. NATURES SHAPES: THE HUMAN FORM Here we will focus on drawing and painting the human form. Really just a series of shapes, your three weeks of life drawing and painting working directly from a life-model will help you to develop your confidence in creative drawing, observation and drawing from life. If for any reason our life-model is unable to attend last minute we will instead practice drawing or painting from other natural shapes such as plants, fruit or flowers (this is unlikely but is a useful back-up). COLOUR, EXPRESSIONISM & ABSTRACTION This part of the course is essential for solidifying your colour confidence and is the most freely creative part of the course. We'll work from the gut this time starting with Mindful Dreamscapes in fabulous compressed charcoal and work through some colour theory and play, expressive mark making in acrylics before finishing with an abstract painting celebrating energy, light and colour. PEMBROKESHIRE LANDSCAPES This final part of the course builds on everything we've learnt so far. You'll use your new observation, mark-making and colour skills to bring a stunning local landscape to life with energy, light and colour, starting in black and white charcoal drawing and finishing in full blazing colour. EXHIBITION We'll finish the course with a week long exhibition of your work to celebrate our 15 weeks together and collective artistic achievements.
