This is a beginner’s course in the textured use of acrylic and other mediums to form varied and interesting surfaces and compositions. This approach lends itself well (but is not limited) to abstract work. The techniques can also be used in realistic and figurative works to add significant depth and interest. The course is also suitable for all abilities and experience. It’s something different!

A 17 hour block course over 3 days 18, 19, 25 May, starting at 9am each day.
This is a great course for both beginners and experienced oil painters who want to learn about how oil paint works, and the techniques that can be achieved. You may have been painting with oils for a while but find your works dull, muddy, lifeless or even cracked?
This is a very structured course delving into the properties, history and science behind oil paint.
Students will end up with 4 paintings using different techniques including old masters, impressionist and contemporary styles. Good drawing skills are helpful but certainly not necessary, as the focus is on technique and the application of paint.
This course is guaranteed to be fun, challenging and inspirational learning.
Watercolours are the most versatile of all the mediums. Beautiful light effects and flowing washes are achieved by loose and bold brush strokes and a good knowledge of control of pigment and water. Come along and brush up on your skills for a weekend with Jacky Pearson. She will demonstrate techniques step by step and give you plenty of time to practice. Day One we will paint a simple landscape with cumulus clouds; Day Two a figure from photographs supplied. Each morning we will use build up exercises: drawing, tonal and colour mixing, to allow everyone to fully understand the subject matter. The workshop will suit beginners to experienced.

Furthering exploration into relief textured printing the workshop will also explore embossing, hand burnishing, ghost printing and hand made marks. An exciting workshop for those who are keen to advance from the first introduction workshops, and also an ideal place to start your printmaking journey.
