With Artist Claire Western

These courses are designed for students of 14 – 18 who are interested in Art, possibly studying it for GCSE or A level and who would like to expand their knowledge and experience.

We will be making monoprints, collagraphs, etchings and printing over a range of prepared surfaces. Students will also be introduced to working with mixed media and exploring all the expressive possibilities of unusual combinations of surface and colour.

Subjects will be provided, but individual choices may be prompted by GCSE or A level themes and focus. This is a great opportunity to add to the range of work in a portfolio for exams and Foundation portfolios. All materials, papers, painting supports and the use of a press will be provided.

Each session will produce completed work so you can do one or all of the courses.

The course will be running over two days, using either acrylics or oils and will be suitable for beginners or improvers. The focus will be on simplifying our subject by concentrating on the big shapes and learning about colour, composition and tone.

Each student will be able to work at their own pace and with a maximum of 7 students you will be ensured plenty of one to one tuition, including demonstrations from Caroline.

We will begin the course with colour mixing, and painting a small still life, then move on to look at simplifying and painting landscape
