new weekly local course for september 2018 - nature into art

beech leaf

Following the success of the botanical coloured pencil group, there will be a new class in September focusing more widely on the natural world. Subjects will include landscape and seascape, plants, butterflies, birds, shells etc. The course may suit people interested in botany, wildlife and the countryside but who prefer to work in a freer style and with more varied subject matter.
We'll be using a range of materials including ink, coloured pencil, pastel, graphite, watercolour, acrylic and mixed media, depending on the subject and students’ preferences. Projects may be short or spread over several sessions and will involve demonstrations and one-to one help. Sample topics might be as follows, but will all be based on the natural world:

autumn leaves in graphite with watercolour wash (see above)
winter trees in ink, graphite and white on a coloured paper
spring landscape in ink and coloured pencil
coastal landscape in acrylic and mixed media
butterfies and birds in coloured pencil
