New dates announced!
Join us for a four week course in Colour and Paint starting at 7pm on Tuesday November 17th.
Practice using different tones & hues of colour and try colour mixing with guidance and simple exercises.
You will need to purchase paints, brushes and paper to participate at a total cost of around £10. See details below for suggested links to purchase them.
7pm to 7.45pm.
Using a simple set of 8 gouache paints, participants will investigate primary, secondary and complementary colours. The paints are water-based and easy to use.
Enjoy looking at the difference between tone and hue. Mix and match colours; learn how to mix neutrals and greys.
Discover how colours affect each other and work together and when and how to use different brushes.
The students will use colour to create mood, light and space in their paintings, working from the screen to make simple colourful still lifes. Suitable for all levels, focus is on enjoyment and the process of discovery!
