About this course

If you have some experience of oil painting, are relatively new to the medium, or you are in need of a refresher, then this course is for you. Through a wide range of tutor led projects, you will learn new oil painting techniques based on the work of both historical and contemporary painters. You will have the opportunity to experiment and develop your style through the creation of original pieces of artwork plus develop your drawing to support any paintings.
There is a structured but relaxed learning plan which will identify your individual needs, to help you reach your goals as you continue to practise and develop your skills.
By the end of the course you will be able to:
Make choices about subject matter and composition, through the use of reference material and observational drawings.
Use a wider range of painting techniques.
Understand the qualities of a wider range of painting materials including - brushes, surfaces, paints and solvents.
Be aware of and work to relevant Health and Safety guidelines.

How will I be taught?

Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, one to one guidance, group discussions and critiques. You will look at the work of contemporary and historical artists and you will keep a sketchbook/notebook and individual learning plan (ILP) to record goals, ideas, processes and progress. You will undertake critical reflection and evaluation and be motivated to develop creative skills and enhance/develop personal skills.

What do I need to bring with me?

You should bring an A4 sketchbook of good quality cartridge paper, preferably with a hard cover and ring bound and a variety of pencils. You will need to provide your own materials and these will vary in cost according to the course requirements. If you have any paints or brushes you think may be suitable please bring them along to the lessons and the tutor will advise you further. An apron will also be good to protect your clothes.

What can I do next?
