Service Description

This course is suitable for all levels; beginners welcome. This course is for those looking to explore and develop their acrylic painting. It would be handy to have a little knowledge of some of the basics, including colour mixing. During the course students will be working in the studio from a still life set up to produce pleasing paintings, working on developing their composition and style. Later on in the term students will have an opportunity to paint a clothed model. With tips on technique and short demos from artist and tutor Jaya Cauchy Ogilvie, students will develop in confidence over the term. Materials List • Surface canvas, paper/s, boards cartridge paper heavy, or wooden board! Experiments with surface will be explored. • A set of student or artist quality paints eg system primary and some secondary colours.
