DRAWING AND PAINTING

FRI MORNINGS - 9.30 - 12.30

FRI AFTERN OONS 1.00 - 4.00

Art is inspiring; to be able to render form, to give shape

to ideas, to bring into existence the illusion of reality

through painting and drawing seems like magic.

Some part of it is magic, but the rest can be taught.

The basic approach to it all, to seeing, is applying

relative measurement, learning perspective,

foreshortening and handling space, and this is what

we shall be applying on these courses. Working with

colour follows from basic drawing. Painting on these

courses can be in watercolour, acrylics or oil paint . 

Remember it is all to enjoy. There are stages as in

everything and you can make good progress in a            

short space of time if you apply the basic formal elements.

 

DAVID BROADBENT                        

SATURDAY

David will be teaching those necessary technical aspects                

of photography that make an individual photograph a success.

If you are regularly disappointed with your results, can't pluck

up the courage to get off full auto, don't know your f stop from

your ISO or you are hoping to develop the skills you already

have then this is the course for you. It’s fun and jargon

busting with a definite slant to the creative. David will walk

you through making the most of your digital camera, seeing

the picture, understanding the settings, making fine adjustments

to your camera's automation, using lenses, manipulating light,

both natural and artificial and storing, manipulating and presenting

your pictures. New comers are more than welcome and the

course benefits from a lively and active group willing to share

their own ideas.

Silver workshops

During the afternoons you will be working with sterling silver and learning basic techniques to create pieces of jewellery to your own design.

Firstly you will design your piece of Jewellery,

a simple ring, pendant, earrings or simple bangle. We will look at what you will need to make your Jewellery.

Then you will learn how to manipulate your silver by cutting, bending, shaping and texturing.

Some processes will require annealing, fusing and soldering.

You can learn how to set a cabochon stone on a ring or pendant, and how to make your own findings from ear hooks to necklace clasps.

There will be a lot of sanding to get rid of any marks before you will learn how to polish it to a high shine.

 

 

VAL WELHAM

 

Play with clay for a day

one day workshop in which you can explore the medium of clay. Working from various sources; photographs, objects, nature, you will be encouraged to experiment with abstract forms as well as literal interpretations.
Students who have a specific piece of work in mind that they would like to produce will be assisted by the tutor in any techniques that might be needed.
This workshop gives students the opportunity to develop their work further. We proceed at our own pace and share progress in a sociable atmosphere of friendly criticism with the group. Some of our best work is achieved working alongside others so please come and join us.
An inspiring workshop to encourage your creative skills. Suitable for all levels including complete beginners. No previous experience is necessary. The emphasis will be on creativity and enjoyment.
Last year students created varied pieces; bird box, green man, wall plaques and animal sculptures.
