Strumpshaw Community Hall is a brand new modern building with a light and airy hall where the class is held. 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. Tea, a selection of Dulce Gusto coffees and biscuits are made available by the tutor for a small covering fee.

THURSDAY MIXED MEDIA PAINTING COURSE

This is a long established and very friendly group of mixed ability painters. New students are always welcome. Some students are working at their own pace on their own project using their own reference images, while others are following a tutor directed program. Anyone completely new to art has access to a small supply of materials until you feel that their chosen medium is for them. 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.
