Beginner's art class LondonOur beginner’s art classes are held in our central London art studio. In these classes, students are taught the fundamental techniques of drawing and painting, such as line, shading, colour mixing, composition and scale. They will achieve an understanding of form by first learning to draw various geometric shapes and objects.  They will then proceed to painting, and will be taught colour mixing techniques, colour values, and painting application techniques. The media which students will be introduced to in our beginners courses are: graphite, charcoal, chalk pastel, oil pastel, oil paints, watercolour, and acrylic paints.

These classes are aimed towards those with an interest in creating art but have never taken art classes, or for those who have taken art classes in the past and wish to revisit their passion. These classes are also suitable for young people who are thinking of applying to art schools. If you wish to relax and have a bit of fun and learn about art, or are looking to find a creative way to invigorate your life after work, this is the class for you.

What you will achieve on completing the course
The step-by-step nature of our beginners classes will allow students to easily acquire and improve basic drawing and painting techniques. By the end of the course, students will have a solid comprehension of structure, mediums, and approaches in the 2-dimensional form, and the motivation to develop their new skills.

Excluding paper for dry media drawings, please note that the classes do not include materials.
