This course is aimed at beginners who wish to try out various painting mediums and techniques and improvers who are looking to refresh or develop their painting skills. We shall explore diluted and impasto techniques to make use of the versatility of acrylic paints. This will include capturing texture, light and dark (contrast), colour mixing, composition, etc. Oil pastels, soft pastels and soft graphite pencils will also be covered as well as a variety of subjects. The course will be structured around demonstrations, set work and students’ own projects.
