Who is this course for: This course is for anyone with a bit of interest in art. We will create a painting using the proposed technique to create a dramatic and colourful piece that can decorate your home this winter!
Previous knowledge or experience: and understanding of colour mixing would be ideal but no other knowledge or experience is required, just lots of enthusiasm an desire to learn and have fun.
How will I learn: This course focuses on experimentation and how embracing “mistakes” can create amazing opportunities. You will learn by watching a demonstration, this will be done step by step and then you will follow those steps with Fatima's advice along the way too. You will also learn by doing, playing and creating wonderful mistakes and make them work with a few tricks. Part of the learning process will be evaluating your own work and giving feedback to and receiving feedback from Fatima on each session. This process will help you grow in confidence as well as communication skills while discovering your learning and art style. Fatima will provide images on the session. You are welcome to use your own photos, however, try to stick to the topic/subject so you can follow the demo.
How will I be assessed :As part of the first session Fatima will ask you a few questions to assess you level and understand what your expectations are on the course. This is to make sure you get the most out of it!
What shall I bring: Acrylic set or loose colours: cobalt blue, ultramarine blue, cadmium red, magenta (or any rose/pinky red), cadmium yellow and titanium white (please bring extra titanium white), a set of brushes (long handle ideally) I recommend graduate from Daler-Rowney, 2 pots for water, a palette for mixing colours, canvas (A4 or A3 recommended).
