TEN-WEEK COURSE PLAN drawing & painting in both watercolours and acrylics for both beginners and those more advanced.
Also, the same course but done all day one Saturday per month
for three months (please contact me for further details).


Classes held at Liverpool, Maghull, Lydiate, Hightown, Formby and Southport

The aim over the first ten weeks (or one Saturday per month for three months) is for you to use paint in a confident way, to understand the basic principles that will allow you to progress on your own initiative.

This will be achieved in a friendly and relaxed class so that you will learn best by a hands on approach and at your own pace, with me giving a demonstration of what you are asked to do, then allowing you to experiment with the medium under my guidance.

On week one, you will be introduced to the basic drawing skills such as measuring up a subject to achieve the correct proportions. Often, even people who may have been painting for a number of years, have not been taught basic drawing techniques, for example: how to measure and achieve correct proportions. The course will also deal with simple perspective. A good painting cannot sit on a badly drawn composition. Once you are happy with the basics, you will then move on to painting techniques, working from a still-life, set up in the class room. This will allow you to learn at your own pace in order to gain confidence in the acrylic medium and to experiment on personal technique. Initially, you will work in one colour, to gain knowledge of tone, before moving on to more colours. On the following weeks you will be able to work from your own favourite subject under my guidance.

The cost of the ten week course is from 55 to 75, depending which venue you attend (contact me for more information). The course will then be ongoing till next summer.





THE MAIN AREAS COVERED BY THE FIRST TEN WEEKS WILL BE:

Introduction to materials needed

Introduction to the medium of drawing & painting

Compositional skills, including how to transfer a photograph to paper or canvas by use of the grid system Use of simple perspective and how to measure and achieve accurate proportions

Introduction of techniques on how to apply paint and how to mix colours

Exercises on tone, using one colour, then advancing on to more colours

To produce by the end of the first 10 weeks a body of work that will demonstrate your progress
