As a course, it is suitable for both experienced painters/artists and newbies alike. Linda is aware that painters are very much individuals, and as such has developed tactics and techniques which further their personal perception of what painting is. With this in mind, the syllabus this year will be about 'what' and 'how'. Term one is a graze through three possible ways of painting . We will look at 1)facsimile (accurate descriptive painting), 2)expressionism (emotional imagery using particular techniques to heighten feelings), 3)painting in light (emphasis on light dark contrast both to model and create drama). Each of these themes will take up two sessions. In the first session, we will study the images, discuss the techniques used to get the effects required, and then experiment with these ideas. The second session will be aboutdeveloping these ideas further by completing a full painting using what you understand about the stylistic idiom we studied in the session before. Please bring a good quality sketch block and pencils, all other materials provided. Linda Hart has many years of experience in teaching, making and studying art and loves to support artists of any level with the next steps of their own artistic journey.
