About the event

‘Look and See’ Drawing and Painting

A six week introductory Art Course

Tuesdays 9:30 - 12:30

19 March - 23 April 2019

Course tutor: Wendy J. Allen MA

£90 (£15 for each session totalling £90 for the six week course).*

Each weekly session will begin with drawing skills, using simple exercises to train your eye and connect your hand. This will be followed by coffee and a chat about the painting challenge for the day, exploring the work of various artists. We will then have about 2 hours of painting from photographs, still life or, if weather permits, outside. This course will concentrate on using acrylics. You will need a starter pack of paints, a palette and some synthetic-hair brushes, (although I will bring all of these for you to try the first week), plus an A3 sketchbook and a 3B or 4B pencil.
