Abstract Intuitive Painting - Strengthen your Art
6th Sept - 6th Dec 2019
10am - 2pm
Celia Forestal Smith
In this course we will be looking at the fundamental principles which make your Art stronger. For example, Composition, Tonal Values, Colour, Textures, Taking risks and putting more of yourself, your soul, into your work. We will learn about how to gain clarity in order to move forward with your work, giving it the ‘WOW’ factor. We will learn what makes us FEEL ALIVE by being more conscious of the range of DIFFERENCES we use in our work and therefore we will become more discerning and authentic in our Art making. We will learn to put the fun and passion into Art Making. Through out the course we will be looking and learning from other Abstract artist’s work which will put your own into context.
This course is for beginners to advanced artists who are feeling stuck with their work and need a boost of inspiration to keep going.
Price: £400 for 12 weeks or £200 for 6 weeks. You can pay in two instalments to Celia if you you wish.
This 11 week course on Thursdays invites individuals who are already creating their own work to develop and expand their art practice under the guidance of experienced tutor and practicing artist, Kenneth Le Riche.
This is a practical course that will be structured around students continuing their own work whether that be drawing, painting, and/or mixed media. There will be individual tutorials which aim to identify the core of each student’s practice and devise strategies to take it forward. The course will provide students with critical feedback on their work, introduce new practical skills and advice on how to continue in the weeks to follow. There will be some seminars and powerpoint presentations relevant to the students’ work.
The studio will be equipped with a range of core materials for students to use; including pencils, graphite sticks, willow charcoal, compressed charcoal, chalk, ink, pastels, acrylic paints, oil paints, solvents, binders, pigments, and paper. Students may also wish to bring any additional materials of their choice.
