'Discovering Watercolour Landscape Painting' 1-day workshop with Neil Pittaway

22 Aug 2017
Mall Galleries
The aim of this one-day workshop is to introduce students to the beauty of watercolour landscape painting. You will learn how to use materials [paper paints and brushes] and experiment with different techniques [washes, colour mixing, tone, texture and pattern] through carefully designed exercises. The structure of the course is flexible and can accommodate all skill levels from beginners to advanced students. You will have the opportunity to apply these techniques to create various landscape paintings of your own based on source material and artists references provided by your tutor. The day will conclude with a plenary session where you will have the opportunity to discuss and review the days outcomes.

'Painting Summer Light' 1-day workshop with Julie Jackson NEAC

23 Aug 2017
Mall Galleries
This workshop is an introduction to moving outside and making drawings and paintings in the open air. You will spend the day in St James Park painting one picture in the morning light and one in the afternoon light. Intense visual and emotional responses can be triggered by a view, a glimpse of sun through the trees, or reflected light on water. You will begin by looking at the main tones of the scene, simplifying the shapes, then building the painted image. Completing work on the spot will give you invaluable experience.

'Colour and the Figure' 1-day workshop with James Bland NEAC

24 Aug 2017

One- to-one tuition will be provided throughout the day, which will conclude with a plenary session. All levels of ability and experience are welcome.
