About the Course

The course is on a Tuesday afternoon for 12 weeks. We also offer a Tuesday evening class, please see our other course listing to book.

Week 1-3: Drawing Techniques
The first three weeks of your art class we will cover the basic elements, where you will learn the importance of mark making, shading and depth in drawing. This is a great way to start!

Week 4-5: Chalk and Oil Pastels
We start to introduce colour and will show you how colours are mixed on the paper, and how overlaying and blending various colours helps to create texture.

Week 6-8: Watercolours
The next two weeks we play with watercolour. We’ll look at the materials, tools and techniques needed to paint with watercolour, such as wet on dry, wet on wet, dry on wet, the use of additives. You will learn paper preparation and how to mix different pigments on your palette.

Week 9-11: Acrylics
A very popular medium due to its versatility and ability to create many different styles of art. The richness in colour when applied with both brushes and a palette knife is amazing!

Week 12: Exhibition
Our end of term art exhibition is an opportunity to show your family and friends what you have been up to for the last three months! It’s a fun way to end the course and celebrate!
