The following is a list of courses at the studio, including a brief outline and course code.
Oil Painting / Drawing Master Class
This course is designed for experienced artists working in a master class environment.
This is an intensive drawing course combining studies in visual observation techniques with a variety of drawing materials and mediums (including graphite, charcoal, pen & ink and conte).
This course is designed for both students with no oil painting experience and those with experience. Level one students will be encouraged to participate in step-by-step projects (such as a still life and landscape painting), whilst more advanced students can work on their own chosen subjects.
Botanical Drawing and Painting
The course will introduce students to the history of botanical art and provide a solid foundation for serious study in botanical drawing and painting techniques.
Throughout the course students will complete a series of projects using traditional watercolour practices, such as drybrush and wet-into-wet painting, glazing, masking, sponging and laying down washes.
