Painting in Acrylics/Drawing in Mixed Media - Sarah Aylward

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

This course is designed for both beginners & experienced students. Students will begin their painting journey with a process that facilitates working in layers, where different skills can be gained with each layer – using a range of techniques. It will also allow for more possibilities to manifest in their work. Each student will find more solutions to their painting dilemmas. There will be different exercises that facilitate learning in mainly colour as well as tone, form, texture & composition. Students will learn more about paint consistencies using acrylic mediums and a range of tools. Students are taught how to capitalise on mistakes. Development of personal marks/style is a priority in this course. There will be an experimental part to the term where there is the option of drawing in various media/collage. Landscape, still life, portraiture & personal projects are subject matter.

Please contact the tutor prior to enrolling. Fees cover tuition. You will need to provide your own art materials – please contact the tutor for a materials list.

"I endeavour to help students relax into the painting process rather than focus on results. I aim to facilitate, in painting terms, an inner dialogue with the subconscious from where strong expressive work emerges."
