Painting and Practice | Term Two, 2023

Here's your opportunity to explore and learn from 'mistakes', experience creative inspiration and achieve outcomes you'll be delighted with.
Explore the practice of creative painting, from selection of the most appropriate brush, evolving your own colour palette, through to the completion and presentation of the finished work.
Work on new or existing paintings.
A few of the topics we will cover include - choice of subject, composition and perspective, light on dark or dark on light, mediums, glazing, layers, affordable presentation, materials/techniques and more.
We can also cover the following - photographing your work for online galleries and social networks, as well as how to use websites.
