Event Information

During this one day workshop you will explore essential aspects of colour theory and colour harmonies in order to produce successful paintings, and learn how to avoid muddy colours in your work.

Who is this course for?

This workshop is suitable for adults aged 18+ years. It is open to all levels from beginners who may be completely new to drawing and painting or anyone who would like to improve their observational drawing and painting skills. You don’t need any previous experience as full instruction is given.

The workshop is accessible for people with disabilities as the room is wheelchair accessible and a support worker or carer may assist. Carers must book a complimentary ticket if attending a workshop to provide support. Please contact us to discuss your specific situation and needs.

What will you learn on this course?

You will learn about colour theory techniques by drawing inspiration from a range of subjects such as landscapes, still life, portraits and abstracts to produce a two dimensional artwork.

This workshop is also about learning to look, how we see our environment and seeing the qualities we want to represent visually. You will explore ways of recording what you see through observation and imagination. You will be encouraged to work independently with one-to-one support from the tutor. Guidance will be tailored to your level of experience to help you to achieve your aims for your work.

In addition to practical drawing and painting techniques the workshop focuses on creative skills, artistic knowledge and self-confidence.

On completion of this workshop students will have created a 2 dimensional image and will have gained a new approach to colour painting.

Do you need to bring anything?

The drawing and painting studio is equipped with easels and drawing boards. Paper is provided that can be used during the lesson, and some basic art materials that may be borrowed on the day, such as pencils, erasers, sharpeners, brushes and paint.

You may wish to bring additional art materials to work with.

Are there any additional costs?
