Introduction to Painting

12th April 2016, 2:00 pm - 24th May 2016, 4:30 pm

This six week course follows our very successful Introduction to Drawing courses which have been held over the winter. It will suit those who would like to progress to basic painting skills. It can also be tailored for those who wish to build on prior experience.

You may have done some painting in the past, and wish to refresh your skills. Perhaps you liked art at school, enjoy visiting galleries and would like to find out more about the techniques painters use. Or perhaps you are a complete beginner at everything and just want to have some creative fun in good company!

Over one afternoon a week for six weeks, Alison Cage, the tutor, will guide you through different approaches to painting, including materials, preparation of backgrounds and approaches to different subject matter. You can see examples of Alison’s unique and inspiring work on her facebook page Alison Cage Artist. She paints mostly in acrylics and oils and is particularly well-known for her local landscapes and cityscapes. There will be opportunities to discuss well known paintings and share ideas with each other.

The cost of the course is £75 and includes use of basic materials.

There will be no class on 17 May.
