Course takes place over 5 consecutive Fridays.
No matter your preferred style of painting, having a full understanding of what you can achieve with the colours on your palette and the restrictions that come with it, will not only help you achieve more coherent and consistent art works but will also save you money in knowing what paints you need to buy to paint the type of work you want to paint. Not only will Russell continue to cover colour and its application but he will also reinforce the key fundamentals and guide you to apply your understanding and create works of art that will help raise the standard of any work you paint or draw. This course provides you the opportunity to apply that learning and to raise your painting skill
Who is this course for: Individuals looking to develop their creative skills to gain an understanding of foundation skills, over informal fun sessions.
Previous knowledge or experience: None required except lots of enthusiasm, willingness to learn and a desire to have fun. This is a foundation learning course and is designed to help you develop your skills no matter what type of painter you are.
How will I learn: This is a relaxing and friendly course with opportunity for plenty of note taking and step by step demonstrations. You will be gently guided through different painting activities, reinforcing key foundations that you would normally only gain at expensive workshop type painting activities.
Each week will focus on building your skills and will require you to commit to practical exercises that will enable your understanding of colour in painting to develop further. The focus is on practical application of colour, colour mixing and opportunity to write notes from an experienced artist
How will I be assessed: Through observation, questioning, discussion, and peer/self-evaluation.
What shall I bring: A materials list will be provided.
Next steps: Further exploration of Colour and its Application in Painting with Russell
