Description

About the course:

On this course you will develop your own response to a given topic.
You will be encouraged to research both artists and artistic styles.
Use your sketchbook to develop and experiment with ideas along with creating compositions and designs to work from.
You will work through techniques to develop your drawing and mixed media skills. Most sessions will begin with a demonstration, which you can follow or develop with your own ideas and skills.

This is a 12 week course with a one week break at half-term (27th October)

Over the 12 weeks we will:
• Learn how to use source images to develop ideas and compositions.
• Sketch with pencil and other drawing mediums to create marks and textures.
• Create colour mixes using your choice of medium.
• Use mixed media techniques to develop your own responses and ideas.
• You can work in your sketchbook or on loose paper depending on the mediums we use. The idea is to work on several small projects, which you can develop into a final piece.

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?

You will also have access to a Student Chatroom, where you can post your work, ask questions and comment as part of an online community of artists supported by your tutor.

What you will need

For this course you could use:
• Suitable paper or sketchbook for your chosen mediums.
• Drawing media (this could include; graphite pencils, coloured pencils, wax crayons, oil pastels, chalk pastels, charcoal, drawing pens, felt-tip pens...etc.)
• Paint media (any; watercolour, gouache, acrylic or coloured inks)
• Brushes, pots, palette, kitchen roll

Do not buy new materials as the idea is for you to use all the equipment you have at home already!

You will also need suitable access to zoom online and to be able to view the session at your workstation or studio space.

Beautiful model and plenty of instructions from Tricia. Made unpleasant by the necessity of having to wear masks all day. Shame the November session has been cancelled, but looking forward to February 2021!

Response from Art with Tricia:

Thanks for your feedback.
Fingers crossed our 2021 courses won't have such strict COVID restrictions and we may be able to dispense with masks.
I'm glad you enjoyed the session otherwise.

This was the first of Tricia's classes that I attended. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. The morning session was quite intense but after the initial warm up sketches, I felt that we had sufficient time to complete more complete drawings. The model, Katie, was fabulous and a perfect subject. Tricia was very helpful to everyone and provided just the right amount of support when needed. I thought I would be inexperienced compared to the other attendees, but this was a very mixed group and everyone was welcoming. The afternoon session was interesting with the opportunity to try two types of printing. Time didn't permit us to try both, but it would be nice to have a go at the second option on another occasion. I look forward to attending future workshop and will be checking Tricia's website for other art classes that I may be able to attend on a more regular basis.

Response from Art with Tricia:

I'm so glad you enjoyed your first session. You are right the group is quite a mix of different abilities and I hope I can make everyone feel part of the group by spending more time with newer students and pushing those with more experience to challenge themselves.

I really enjoyed this course. We had a very natural model and the afternoon was fun. I learnt a new hobby with the lino cutting. Tricia is a very patient and kind teacher who is willing to show you how to put things right when you go wrong. I will certainly be looking out for other courses

Response from Art with Tricia:

Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the session and in the afternoon got a taste of a new medium, with the lino cutting!
Todays model was lovely.....I'm sure you'll see her again on another course.

7 December 2019 Life Drawing: The model was absolutely lovely and had some wonderfully graceful poses. The afternoon was enjoyable learning a new art technique and made a good change of pace from the morning as Life drawing is quite an intense day. I find that I could do with a couple of extra breaks in the day when just life drawing.

Response from Art with Tricia:

I'm glad you enjoyed sketching our new model and I'm sure she will be back next year. The afternoon printing was a nice change and everyone produced some great work.
The whole day life drawing is often lots of drawing and even more concentrating! But its great to see how student's skills improve even over one session.

Tricia is a wonderful, patient tutor (and I'm not just saying that because she brings cakes!), who guides us through her courses based on our individual strengths and weaknesses. I have attended several of her classes and always feel there is something fun, new and interesting to learn.

A very different and challenging life course with the musicians expertly playing a wide range of music while posing in natural playing stances.
A clothed life class is new to me but the music evoked a new style to my art.
Tricia was continually behind the scenes dropping words of advice or approval as she observed our efforts.
It was hard work but very enjoyable.
I hope Tricia will bring them together again for us.

Response from Art with Tricia:

Thank you for your support over the past few years, I'm glad to see you are still enjoying coming to Life Drawing each session and are being 'challenged' by the different themes each workshop.

Have been to several of the Life Drawing workshops before and always enjoyed them. This one with musicians was a bit different and quite a challenge as they were clothed and constantly moving! A nice relaxed atmosphere, helpful encouragement and words of advice from Tricia and the music was great. I'd love to have another go at this.

Response from Art with Tricia:

Many thanks for your positive feedback and continued support of the Life Drawing workshops throughout the year.

Always fun, Tricia is a friendly and helpful tutor, who is happy to share her knowledge.
Each workshop sets a new challenge, offering lots of opportunities to push myself and practise my drawing skills.

Response from Art with Tricia:

Claire, thank you.

Interesting and challenging days - especially enjoy the slightly longer poses.

Response from Art with Tricia:

Kate thank you so much.
