Painting in Acrylics / Drawing in Mixed Media 

This course is designed for both beginners and experienced students. Students will begin their painting journey with a process that facilitates working in layers, where different skills can be gained with each layer – using a range of techniques. Students will learn how to create an underpainting using an image as a reference point to go beyond this image allowing for more possibilities to manifest in their work. Each student will find more solutions to their painting dilemmas. There will be different exercises that facilitate learning in mainly colour as well as tone, form, texture and composition. Students will learn more about paint consistencies using acrylic mediums and a range of tools. Students are taught how to capitalise on mistakes. Development of personal marks/style is a priority in this course.  There will be an experimental part to the term where there is the option of drawing in various media/collage. Landscape, still life, portraiture and personal projects are subject matter.

“I endeavour to help students to relax into the painting process rather than focus on results. I aim to facilitate, in painting terms, an inner dialogue with the subconscious from where strong expressive work emerges.”
