Service Description

Thursdays from 6.30pm - 9.00pm 10 weeks from Thursday 20th January to Thursday 31st March (no class Thursday 17th February). In this acrylic painting class we will be finding our artistic creative flow with this fabulously versatile medium. The class is suitable for absolute beginners as well as those looking to refresh their basic skills.   All our classes are professional yet relaxed and give you adequate breathing and creative space to shine and safely express yourself in an encouraging environment.   The group will spend time exploring different techniques, working on various grounds, and generally playing around with the paint colours and textures until you have a veritable portfolio to show your friends!   Students will paint still life by working from our own images and spontaneously too. Looking at colour theory, styles, and approaches. Learning how to use different brushes and palette knives to understand and explore the texture and consistency of the paint and where it can lead you.   Please feel free to bring any stimuli you’d like to, and Jaya will guide you gently in the way of the art of acrylic painting. This regular creative practise helps build pathways to new cognitive connections, visual pleasure and connectivity within the medium. ​ Giving you the opportunity to experiment and play creatively with the structure of a weekly studio meet for support tips and inspiration.  Tutor Jaya Cauchy Ogilvie has been leading creative workshops and teaching since graduating with her Fine Art MA in 2003, as well as working on her own art. Jaya is a warm and enthusiastic tutor and will help you to nurture your skills whether you're fresh to painting or an experienced painter. ​ Materials provided.
