Explore Impressionist Painters: Six-Week Course
This course offers an exciting opportunity to dig deep into the world of the Impressionists. Each week you will explore a different artist by recreating one of their paintings with step by step guidance from your tutor Richard Kitson, as seen on Sky Arts Portrait of the Year 2018.
As you go along you will be encouraged to record the various techniques you use to create a catalogue of mark making that will inform and inspire your own paintings as you continue your creative journey.
You will explore the paintings of Monet, Manet, Degas, Seurat, Cezanne and Morisot, and use their painting styles to develop your own unique series of paintings of different subject matter.
Who is the course for?
This is a mixed ability course, ideal for complete beginners and those with some experience of painting and drawing. Those with previous experience may wish to use the course to develop different ideas and styles of painting and gain tutor advice along the way.
Do I need to bring anything?
Basic materials will be provided including drawing materials, acrylic paints, brushes, cartridge paper and easels. If you wish to develop your work further you are advised to bring canvas paper or canvas boards along with you. Your tutor will discuss materials with you at the first session.
