Painting with Mixed Media

A one day course from 9am to 5pm on either Friday 6th or Saturday 7th of December

A painting class which encourages students to incorporate texture in their paintings and explore the qualities of a variety of media including inks and gouache and techniques including collage and resist.  Martin will advise and help students select, refine and discriminate when working from source material. Students will improve their judgment when it comes to selecting and rendering texture, line and colour.


Oil Painting

A one day course from 9am to 5pm on  Friday 13th December


Martin Laurance introduces the quality and characteristics of oil colours.  He will teach students to lay down a coloured ground and work with a limited colour scheme; taking a still like composition for the theme.  Students will gain confidence in differentiating between tonal and colour constructed schemes and will paint their own split complementary colour scheme.


Life Drawing with Sarah Beare

This course runs on Wednesday evenings 6.30 - 8.30pm from January 15th to February 12th 

Sarah offers a thorough introduction to classical life drawing.  In the first lesson you will orient yourself to the class and learn best practice and classroom etiquette.  Students will practice recording information in line as fast as possible. At the end of each class there will be an opportunity to share learning points among the class and see that drawing is a highly personal interpretation of visual material and that outcomes differ hugely from the same task while remaining valid.  During the five week class students will also explore different outcomes that can be achieved just using line and different types and characters of line. There will be a lesson that focuses on breaking the figure down into just highlights and shadow and students will practice working to different scales and using viewfinders to make decisions about composition.  Lastly, there will be an introduction to construction, in which students will measure proportions with a kebab stick, find parallel lines and negative spaces and check intersections to improve accuracy.
