Description

Four-week course 16th, 23rd, 30th Sept & 7th Oct 2022 (Craft Courses only show the start date).
10am-2pm on a FRIDAY
A small group course (3 max)

Suitable for confident beginners and anyone wanting to improve their creativity, expand their general art knowledge and try some new techniques

WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING (this may vary according to group requirements but gives you an idea)
This course combines colour, abstraction and landscape and focuses on creating an interpretation of the artwork 'Secret Skies'. Week one we'll spend the day playing with colour and producing an abstract piece on paper or canvas using the two key colour signatures of cadmium orange and cerulean blue. This will be playful and we'll use brushes and palette knives to drip and flick as well as touching on how colour glazes can transform a painting. In week two we'll play with movement and light in a charcoal drawing before beginning our expressionistic landscape paintings. We'll continue with our paintings in weeks three and four looking at how we can use colour contrast to maximum effect and play with shapes and movement within our paintings. You will go home with a fully fleshed out landscape painting full of energy, light and colour.

WHAT'S INCLUDED
The session includes all materials and equipment (except brushes), tuition and venue hire.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED TO BRING
Brushes are always best looked after by their owners - therefore please bring along a range of large brushes including: a 1-2” decorators brush, something like a number 8 long filbert bristle brush or large short flat brush, and one smaller round brush. The Daler Rowney Graduate brush range is very good. The Windsor & Newton Winton Short Flat no 20 is an alternative to the decorators brush but a little more expensive. You’ll need to wear suitable clothing, bring lunch, refreshments, and a hand towel.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

All materials & equipment except brushes.

I would just like to thank you for a really inspiring four weeks.

I really enjoyed it and now I feel more confident to be Bold Bright and Brave with my painting.

Thanks again and I would love to do another course in the future.

Response from Louise Burdett Artist:

It was lovely to meet you Sonia and share the course with you. I loved your enthusiasm and your piece was insightful and a celebration of energy, colour and light - just the way I like it! I look forward to seeing you again in the new studio later in the year.

This was my first experience of art classes and I can't wait to go again. Louise does the artwork at the same time as you which is a real help. She gives you space to find your own rhythm with periods of instruction. I had a very warm welcome and she immediately put me at ease. I'm looking forward to starting my second course with her next week. Thank you Louise.

Response from Louise Burdett Artist:

It was great to meet you Tina. You were a delight to teach, created some fabulous drawings, and I'm looking forward to seeing you for the life-drawing course this week. Louise x

This is the third course I've taken at Louise's lovely studio - and I may have enjoyed this one most of all! Louise is very action focussed as a teacher, so you start drawing early on in the session, and this means you get three pieces to take home...which is so gratifying. But she doesn't hurry you at all, just motivates and encourages with comments, tips and demonstration. So you're able to totally immerse yourself in your creative process and focus, which is both deeply relaxing and restorative.

Highly recommend Louise's courses and will be back for more.

Response from Louise Burdett Artist:

Thank you for your great review Pippa. It was a delight to see you again and I enjoyed working with you. See you again soon I hope. Louise x

Thoroughly enjoyed this - it gave me the confidence to experiment with acrylics using a much larger paintbrush than I'd have imagined using before, learning how to build up layers of paint with different brush strokes to create an acceptable picture. Louise is a very competent and capable teacher, she explains the process clearly from start to finish and is so inspiring! I'm really looking forward to another workshop!!

Response from Louise Burdett Artist:

Thank you so much Fiona - looking forward to seeing Thursday for our Human Face & Portraiture course. Always a pleasure x

I had a brilliant time and I learnt so much about the layering process. Louise was so helpful and welcoming and I really enjoyed meeting her and the other people at the workshop. Highly recommend her courses and I look forward to doing another in the future!

Response from Louise Burdett Artist:

Thanks so much Rosie. It was a pleasure to have you on the workshop and I will look forward to seeing you again and following your own artistic journey. x

This was one cf the first classes I did with Louise and I'm so pleased it was because it gave the confidence to try others, safe in the knowledge that Louise's teaching style would get the best out of me, whatever the medium being used. In this case it was charcoal. Louise leads by example and breaks things down into manageable chunks so I didn't feel overwhelmed and was able to relax into the session and really enjoy seeing what could be achieved with the medium. Such a liberating experience and I ended up with a finished landscape which far exceeded my expectations to such a degree that I still can't believe I did it! But that's all down to Louise's skill as a teacher and the way she makes you feel with her encouraging and knowledgable approach. Spending time in Louise's lovely studio is a real treat!

Response from Louise Burdett Artist:

Thank you so much for the fab review Su. A pleasure as always. x

The course was well run and we were very Covid safety conscious. Louis had made sure we all had a safe workspace to work in. We all produced an exceptable painting of South Beach Tenby and I for one learnt about using different colours for different effects. It was good value for money and interesting to see that although we all worked from the same painting the results were quite different

Response from Louise Burdett Artist:

Thanks so much Maggie - glad you enjoyed the colour work and the workshop in general. Hope to see you again soon. x

Louise had gone to great lengths to ensure a safe environment with ample space and fresh air.
The course itself was very well run; with small class numbers I felt that we all had the attention that we needed, and it was great to see so many people produce complete paintings under Louise's tuition. Although we used her original painting to work from, each one had it's subtle differences.
Highly recommended.

Response from Louise Burdett Artist:

Thanks so much Tina - it was a pleasure to spend the day with you. Hope to see you again. x
