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 during the Drawing Course you can learn and practice with charcoals, pencils and pastels.
