This course aims to explore and study different aspects of nature around us, taking the student on their own creative and mindful journey. It is for all levels.
Nature is one of the most inspirational places to be, stimulating our senses with its beauty, hushed sounds and interesting smells. The learners will then translate their inspiration and studies into artwork using acrylic paint. These pieces of work can be both an accurate or abstract representation of the subject.
This course will give the learner an opportunity to study, sketch and paint their own area of interest in nature. Weather permitting some of the classes will be outdoors or will start outside to gather ideas and inspiration, then return to the studio to continue. The course will give beginners confidence and help them acquire knowledge in colour, texture, perspective drawing and painting skills, whilst enjoying being around nature.
For the intermediates it will help them improve their skills and take on new challenges in an environment they perhaps haven’t experienced before? Interacting with other artists in this way is fun and inspirational. Artists will work on and take home several pieces of drawn and painted artwork.
