Peter Dammers


basic painting course

In this course you will be introduced to the wondrous world of floating colours: gently blending, transparently overlapping shimmering layers that evoke flaming skies and blooming fields, or opaque, fiercely contrasting expressive brush strokes or daubs that define or simply stir the senses.

Attention will be paid to choosing and handling materials (brushes, mediums etc) and different paints, to colour mixing and colour theory, and to workflows and techniques. Projects include still life and portrait.

After the first introductory session you are expected to bring your own brushes, palette, mediums and canvases. Models, easels, small tables and drawing boards and papers are provided by the school.

The course consists of 6 sessions each of 3 hours. The sessions are scheduled on weekend mornings or afternoons. Start: February/April/September/November. Starting dates are announced on our Facebook page.The price of the course is 375 euros.
