This course will explore basic and more extensive colour theories and harmonies in order to produce successful paintings, avoiding muddy colours.

Who is this course for?

This course 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 course 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 course to provide support. Please contact us to discuss your specific situation and needs.

What will you learn on this course?

This course will explore basic and more extensive colour theories and harmonies in order to produce successful paintings, avoiding muddy colours.

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

This course 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 course focuses on creative skills, artistic knowledge and self-confidence. 

On completion of this course students would have made a 2 dimensional image and would 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?

None
