with Lexi Strauss

The aim of this course is to develop your knowledge and confidence
when working with painted colour. Focusing on acrylics and oils, you will investigate colour, form and different methods of applying paint to a surface in a supportive and dynamic environment. A limited palette will offer you a deeper understanding of colour- introducing you to hue, tone and temperature through fun exercises and experiments. We will experiment with abstract, portrait, still life and landscape painting and we’ll create a portrait from a model at the end of this course.

Notes. Suitable for beginners or those wishing to develop their confidence in painting. Absolute beginners could ideally take this course in conjunction with Lexi’s Drawing for Beginners course. Basic materials and brushes supplied to get you started, you will be advised accordingly of any additional materials and brushes required depending on what you would personally like to achieve.
