In this course you will draw and paint from observation a variety of still life, life, interior, and if the weather permits- landscape. You will use different drawing techniques and experiment with different ways of using the oil paints. We will look into issues such as composition, mark making and colour mixing and examine them in reference to other artists work. The class will be used as a platform to discuss current exhibitions or any other relevant issues that will arise by you and the other students. This is a mixed level class and every level is welcome
This is a mixed ability class. Beginners will be given relevant information in small group or 1:1 presentations when required.
You will be taught through demonstration, personal tuition, group discussion and critique. You will discuss examples of other artists and students work, comparing and contrasting styles and techniques.
You will be given individual and group feedback during the classes to indicate your progress and how you can improve your technique.
A list of materials will be given at the first session. You will be asked to pay for 2 sessions of life models which will be between 5- 7, depending on the size of the class.

1. How much homework will I need to do outside of class? None but sometime you will be asked to bring something to the class or research specific artists. 2. What will happen if I miss a class? Whenever possible, the tutor will try to ensure that you are given the information you missed at your next class. However, it is always a good idea to contact the teacher or another student to know what to bring for the next session. 3. When will the exams take place? This is a non qualification course and so there is no formal assessment but you will be given continuous informal verbal feedback on your progress and how to improve. 4. Do I need any special clothing or equipment? As you may get paint or liquids on your clothes, it is always advisable to wear suitable clothes an apron may come in handy. A list of recommended equipment and materials will be given to you at the first session. 5. Is there any tutorial support? Whilst there will be group presentations and critiques in classes, much of the session involves students working on their own paintings, supported by the tutor. This allows you to advance at your own pace and receive individual feedback.
You can enrol online, over the phone or in person at either site
