Event description

Description

“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”

Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)

For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?

This ten week course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.

This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction.

Topics will include:

Mark-making

Line, measurement and proportion

Perspective

Tonal value

Notān

Colour: theory and mixing

Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.

16:30 - 18:00

Wednesdays: 17, 24, 31 January; 7, 21, 28 February; 7, 14, 21, 28 March 2018
