ART COURSE FOR BEGINNERS


Our beginner’s art classes are held in our central London art studio. 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 different geometrical shapes and objects. They will then step into painting and will be taught colour mixing techniques, colour values, and painting application techniques. The media which students will be introduced to in our beginner's courses are graphite, charcoal, chalk pastel, oil pastel, oil paint, watercolour, and acrylic paint.

Class themes include life drawing, portraits, still life, landscapes, Old Masters, cast drawing and en plein air painting.

In our Painting Course, you can approach media such as oil painting, acrylic painting, watercolours, while for the Drawing Course you can approach charcoals, pencils and pastels.

Suitability 

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 Upon Completion of the Course

The step-by-step, progressive nature of our beginner's art 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, different media, and approaches in the 2-dimensional format, and the motivation to develop their new skills.
