Description

What is the course about?

Broaden your understanding of visual language, and focus on particular areas in painting in more depth. Develop a greater proficiency in the use of oil or acrylic paint and become familiar with a varied range of techniques and their appropriate applications.

What will we cover?

There will be a variety of painting exercises and projects aimed at developing your painting skills and understanding of painting. Projects will vary according to the strengths and interests of each course tutor, however the underlying core elements will not differ.

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

- apply painting methods such as glazing, impasto and wet on wet
- use formal elements, such as tone, composition and colour effectively
- be aware of the effects of surface quality and texture in an image
- have basic skills in appraising your own work
- start to select areas of interest for further development.

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

Intermediate level, not for beginners. You should have some painting experience and it is helpful to have completed a 'Painting 1' or 'Introduction to painting' course.

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?

Basic materials are provided, such as acrylic and oil paint, basic brushes and paper.
If you would like to extend the range for your personal use, your tutor will be able to advise you on what to buy and where to buy it from. Please wear old clothes.

Encouraged by Painting 1, I embarked on Painting 2 and it exceeded all expectations. The tutor layers learning like she layers paint so you grow in confidence week on week.
