MONDAYS

Give me Shelter – Building on the Imagination, with Aileen Wright

Starts Monday 26th September / 8 weeks with half term break

3:00pm – 4:00pm (on Zoom)

In this course we will look initially at how the incredible artists of the Renaissance employed the rules of perspective to depict depth, volume and the three dimensional world. From an understanding of these rules we will go on to explore how we can introduce a certain level of abstraction to our paintings of buildings to create a sense of place and atmosphere.  Having considered the work of a wide variety of artists throughout history, we will produce our own evocative and unusual depictions of buildings that convey our own unique relationship with them.  Buildings have meaning – in multiple layers – and our paintings and mixed media artworks will reflect this.


THURSDAYS

Mixed Media Abstracts, with Warren Day

Starts Thursday 29th September / 8 weeks with half term break

10:00am – 11:00am (on Zoom)

An exciting mix of workshops that explore using mixed media to produce abstracted images.  We will make links to other relevant and exciting artists and incorporate this into the work.  Anything goes on this course so all you will need is enthusiasm and an old painting shirt! Towards the end of the course, you will have the opportunity to develop a personal outcome in response to the initial workshops and produce a final outcome that includes the themes and techniques that you have enjoyed most.
