A Taste of Art: Painting with Oils
£90 for 6 weeks
These small friendly classes will give individual attention and guidance to enable everyone to develop at their own pace to enjoy and get the most from lessons.
Jennifer will guide you through every stage of drawing and painting from direct observation to enable you to develop your own visual language.
The course will introduce you to colour mixing, suitable surfaces and getting used to manipulating oil paint.
Jennifer will teach you how to make colour judgements and put a composition together and through a series of painting projects those skill will be reinforced and will give you the confidence needed to enjoy and to get the most out of oil painting.
By the end of the 6 week course you will have produced your own oil painting on canvas.
The course is led by artist Jennifer Cottis who has taught oil painting courses for adults for several years.
Jennifer's drawings, paintings and ceramic sculptures have been exhibited in private and major public galleries across the country including the Mall Galleries London, the New Art Exchange Nottingham and the Usher Gallery Lincoln. She has had solo exhibitions and won several prizes and her work is in private collections in England and the USA.
Jennifer was educated at the Central School of Art and Design in London and won 2 RSA bursaries for design.
Suitable For: No previous experience necessary. The classes are suitable for complete beginners and also those wishing to improve their skills and techniques.
