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. And projects include figurative as well as abstract painting.
After the first class (where you will be told what to purchase and where best to do that) you are expected to bring your own (few) paints, brushes, and canvases. The school provides models, easels, drawing boards, drawing materials, palettes, papers, mediums, as wel as drinks and snacks.
The teacher is Peter Dammers.
The course has six 3-hour classes, running on consecutive weekend mornings or afternoons. The course fee is 420 euros. Next start: Saturday Nov 12, 10:00-13:00.
