What is the course about?

You will learn the basic skills needed to paint from observation and develop confidence in using acrylic paint.

What will we cover?

We will cover paint and how it works in relation to tone, colour, method and technique. The course incorporates basic colour mixing and develops experience in paint handling in relation to painting from observation. You will be encouraged to try a variety of techniques used by different artists, whose work will be used as examples.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

- use paint to describe the basics of tonal structure
- explore composition in painting
- mix colours using basic colour theory
- use a range of painting techniques such as 'impasto', 'scumble' and 'glaze'
- identify the work of artists and other practitioners.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

This is a course for beginners. Some drawing experience is helpful but not essential.

You should be able to follow simple written and verbal instructions, demonstrations, hand-outs and health and safety information, and will be invited to take part in group discussion.

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

Practical work, individual and group tutoring, group discussion, demonstrations, visual presentations and handouts.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

All basic paints and brushes required for the course are provided.
You will need to bring with you the following materials:
Rags or kitchen roll
Old clothes


.

When I've finished, what course can I do next?

Painting 1 naturally leads on to Painting 2, which prepares you for the technical approaches
necessary for oil or acrylic painting on higher level painting courses such as Develop your painting. You are encouraged to attend both Painting 1 and Painting 2 for maximum benefit. You may also go onto other painting courses such as Ways Into Abstract Painting, Painting and the Creative imagination.
