This course is an overview of our foundation course, studying the fundamentals of drawing and oil painting.
Please arrive anytime from 9.30am for set-up. Teaching will be from 10am.
There will be a 45mins lunch break from 12:15 – 1pm and there is a coffee shop at the studios.
Students learn the 4 key principles of drawing and painting: proportion, line & volume, chiaroscuro and colour.
In the morning, Students start with quick line exercises in charcoal on brown packing paper, building towards longer shaded drawing on textured paper.
In the afternoon they will be introduced to oil painting starting with grisaille and moving onto a limited palette still-life.
All work is either from the cast or still life set-ups.
We will provide the basic materials, to borrow.
Students are very welcome to bring their own materials.
