Description

In this workshop I will teach the step-by-step process that I use to produce paintings.

The workshop will be a mixture of interactive demos with lots of one-to-one and group tuition. The tuition will focus on drawing, value, colour and composition (including mood and harmony).

You will also learn how to use oils to achieve different effects during the build up of your finished paintings.

You will finish the workshop with a painting that you will have brought from initial block in to the final finish.

A suggested materials list will be provided upon signing up for this workshop. Materials will be available to buy from the Welsh Academy of Art shop.

Please bring a packed lunch.

'A wonderfully inspiring teacher & studio. Lee is a very observant teacher who managed to guide my first attempt at oils right through to a finished painting in spite of my sometimes erratic daubing. He always knows how to transform what looks like a mess into what you want it to be! The studio is so atmospheric- a 19th century atelier- previously a Victorian village school, easels, plaster busts & amazing paintings all over the place also the old playground is rapidly turning into a beautiful garden. I really enjoyed my time here & think I have got a good grounding in oils.' Caroline Darrell

I really enjoyed my venture back into the art world on Lee's course.
The location is idyllic and the set up is fantastic. Being surrounded by so many works of art whilst creating my own was just inspiring.
Lee is clearly a very talented painter who has a really relaxed nature about the way he teachers. Tailoring the teaching to each individual and creating an almost family atmosphere within the studio where everyone is supportive of everyone else.
I really enjoyed this course and would recommend it for anyone, be you a complete novice or someone on par with Van Gogh.

Response from Lee Wright Artist:

It was great to meet you Cath and I'm glad you enjoyed the day. I do hope it is the start of your artistic journey.

I attended the Fundamentals of oil painting course on 28th of November with five others. Hugely educational for me, a complete beginner in relaxed non competitive environment. This is an excellent introduction to oil painting identifying the many aspects that one needs to explore including composition, drawing, tone and colour. I can recommend doing the fundamentals to drawing class beforehand as the oils class built on skills learnt there. I can thoroughly recommend if you have any anxiety about putting brush to canvas and want a baseline for further tuition.

I attended Lee's Floral Workshop 26th-29th March 2019 half time and very much appreciated his organized approach which included initial discussion re: composition and the process of building a painting with a handout to help keep us on track. He is a sympathetic teacher who gave lots of useful guidance. I also benefited from the energy of the other students. Very enjoyable course!

Response from Lee Wright Artist:

Thanks Ellie! Glad you enjoyed the workshop. Lee
