These classes have been designed for individuals who wish to draw, paint and cultivate their creative skills, either for leisure or to update their professional practice. Each session is delivered by an experienced art tutor who will introduce the group to a variety of techniques and assorted visual vocabulary, and offer support in developing specific interests and aspirations. Each member of the group will be encouraged to progress within a stimulating, sympathetic and energising environment.
Painting and Drawing
Through an innovative approach to learning this programme is based on a practical and experimental understanding of painting and drawing in its manifest possibilities. This entails such basics as observational studies, techniques, skills, methods and materials, and design and compositional understanding. We aspire to stimulate debate, identify interests and encourage originality.
Each class is delivered by Keith Crocker who is a very experienced regional artist and talented tutor. Keith likes to develop a close working relationship with all his students so they feel empowered to break through their creative barriers to explore new horizons and unlock hidden dimensions within their work and creative applications.
