About this Event

Wednesday evenings 4th November - 9th December 18:00-20:30

Explore drawing and painting on this six-week course for those in the early stages of their artistic journey.

The course will cover still life, portrait and landscape subjects and you will be given step by step instructions in a wide range of drawing and painting techniques.

  • You will start by exploring basic drawing techniques from reference to still life objects, gradually introducing tone and colour to create a still life painting.
  • Portraiture will focus on proportions of the face before developing a portrait in paint and/or pastels.
  • Landscape subjects will be used to explore painting in more depth, allowing for more freedom of expression through depicting light, weather and seasons.

By the end of the course participants will have a better knowledge of drawing and painting techniques and a growing sense of their individual style and strengths in preparation for further development.

Who is the course for?

The course is ideal for beginners and early stage artists. Those wishing to refresh their previous skills and gain tutor advice and guidance may also attend.

Do I need to bring anything?

Some basic materials such as watercolours, acrylics, brushes and paper will be provided. A small range of drawing materials will be available but you are also encouraged to bring your own along to use. Pencils, charcoal, graphite sticks, pastels and a rubber will be useful.

Your Tutor

Luke Thompson is an artist and musician based in Leeds. His methods are based upon contemporary realism, with a strong influence from classical practices. Through his own creative practice he aims to communicate the raw complexities of the portrait, finding a mutual connection of feeling between the subject, artist, and the viewer. Luke regularly takes on commissions and runs workshops across Yorkshire. For examples of Luke’s work visit www.lukethompsonart.com

Working Safely

We have made some changes to ensure everyone feels confident and safe to come and join in without fear of catching Coronavirus. Our courses are running with fewer participants and a larger space to allow plenty of room for social distancing. In line with government guidance we are also requesting that students attend with a mask or face covering.

We hope that being able to immerse yourself with something creative will help to restore a sense of wellbeing and hopefulness as we navigate the ‘new normal’.

If you have any concerns or specific requirements regarding attending a course please feel free to get in touch with us by emailing info@the-arthouse.org.uk.
