Studio Life Painting for Beginners and Improvers

Ideal for beginners or students that have attended our ‘Life Drawing’ short course, the painting course will concentrate on techniques of painting using an array of media and will introduce you to painting from the human form.

Throughout the course you will gain confidence in your observational studies of the human shape and will be encouraged to be both personal and expressive in your work. Through a series of structured exercises, you will develop your skills using line, tone and contemporary colours. You will also have the opportunity to produce studies of a variety of experienced models, both male and female.

All sessions for this course will take place in the studios of the Arts University.
