Harford Community Centre is a brand new building on the old Bally Shoe Factory site. The room where the class is held has good light and comfortable. The venue has easy access and a toilet for the disabled. There is an adjacent kitchen which we use for refreshments. The venue has plenty of free parking (up to 4 hours in the ASDA car park). Tea, a selection of Dulce Gusto coffees and biscuits are made available by the tutor for a small covering fee.

THURSDAY OIL PAINTING COURSE

This is a long established and very friendly group of mixed ability oil painters. Each student is working at their own pace on their own project using their own reference images. Anyone completely new to oil paints has access to a small supply of oil and brushes until you feel that oil painting is for you. whereupon you will need to obtain your own paints, brushes etc. Your tutor will be able to advise you and/or order materials on your behalf.

As a beginner you will be introduced to or learn how to;

  • the different supports and how to prepare them.
  • how to transfer your reference image – either free hand, squaring-up, tracing down or projection.
  • block in your subject.
  • paint fat on lean.
  • mix colours.
  • use mediums.
  • use your brushes and other items to apply paint to create effects.

More advanced students can learner about Gazing, Impasto etc.

As each student is painting at their own pace on their own subject, much of the teaching will occur as one-to-one tuition or advice and guidance.
