Chandlers Ford Library
Friday 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th November 2022
10.00am to 1.00pm
An introduction to combining media in an expressive style.
- Apply at least three Watercolour techniques
- Explain how background, middle ground and foreground can be achieved in a landscape painting to create depth/space
- Create a vignette sketch of a landscape
- Create a monochromatic landscape with at least two different media
- Describe how colour choice affects emotions
Who is the course for: Beginners and improvers. Individuals looking to develop their creative skills using various media, over four informal fun sessions.
Previous knowledge/experience required: Some art knowledge either current or previous would be advantageous but not essential. What is required is lots of enthusiasm, willingness to learn and a desire to have fun. This is a very loose style of painting and so very suitable for beginners and for improvers wanting to let loose.
How will I learn: This is a relaxing and friendly course with step by step demonstrations. You will be gently guided through different painting activities to develop painting techniques, starting at the basics. Each week will focus on specific elements used within art and the principles of design to help understand how to build an expressive landscape painting. There will be lots of playing with media and working on small sketches rather than focusing on a final outcome e.g. one large final painting.
How will I be assessed: Through observation, questioning, discussion and peer/self-evaluation.
Some ideas of what you’ll need a variety is good: Range of pencils like HB, 2B, 6B. Rubber. Sketchbook or loose A4 paper.
