Thursday afternoons | 13.30-16.30 | £200 | 10 weeks
These weekly classes will focus on developing your authentic voice in paint.
Through a series of playful experiments and more rigorous testing of art theories you will gain confidence in listening to your intuition and enjoy using your discoveries in your art making.
You will use mixed media to develop your ideas and Cläre will introduce you to a range of techniques. She will help you understand the properties of the materials and discover ways that they can best be harnessed to create your desired outcomes.
You will be working initially on paper and then progress to developing a series of small paintings on panels. The processes you will learn will be applied initially to abstract ideas but can then be incorporated into more representational work at a later stage.
You will be learning about design, value, colour, texture and finishing your work.
You will be introduced to ways in which you can critique your own work in a constructive way to help you develop as an artist.
This is the first time we are running this course but we hope to run it for three terms each year, each term consisting of 10 Thursday afternoon classes with breaks over local school half terms.
This course is suitable for beginners and those who want to extend their art practice.
