Art @ Quay Place - Experience different mediums and techniques with our 6 week sessions.
Starting Monday Jan 16th 2017 - 5.45 – 7.15pm weekly
The sessions are intended to be an opportunity to try different medium and techniques to help the student find out about the behaviour of different materials and which are best suited to the individual's tastes and interests. No previous experience or skill is needed – just an interest to try something new.
Wk 1 Drawing: pencil, graphite, pens, charcoal, coloured pencils;
Wk 2 Watercolour 1: pans and tubes;
Wk 3 Watercolour2: resist, soluble pen and wash, paint sticks, water soluble pencils;
Wk 4 Pastels: oil and soft pastel, pastel pencils, coloured charcoal;
Wk 5 Acrylics introduction: Types of medium including tubes, sticks and inks;
Wk 6 Acrylics and mixed media: gels and pastes, collage, palette knives.
As these are intended to be taster sessions some materials will be provided in the cost, although students are welcome to bring any of their own resources to the sessions. You will need to bring an apron or wear clothes that you are able to risk.
Paul will bring examples of the medium each week to show how artists have used the specific techniques and materials.
