COME AND LEARN A NEW SKILL IN OUR INSPIRATIONAL SURROUNDINGS THIS SEPTEMBER, IN OUR NEW TERM OF PAMELA SULLIVAN’S ART TASTER COURSE.
This course is a little taster of a variety of different techniques and media and has been created for both beginners and those who are more confident with their art work. We will cover different drawing and painting techniques using a variety of media including the use of graphite pencil, charcoal, acrylic and watercolour paint. We will also cover some basic print making techniques mono and lino cut printing as well as collagraph.
Sessions are tutor led with a short 20 minute to half an hour tutorial and demonstration of newly introduced techniques or medium at the beginning. Students are encouraged to ask questions and try out new techniques and media during each session.
Each session will be set up with primary or secondary source reference materials based on the requirements of the group, examples of this could be artefacts from the Williamson collections, portraiture, organic forms such as flowers, drawing in the built environment; visiting Birkenhead Priory and so on.
The course will run on Fridays, 10am-12pm, from Friday 20th September. The course will run for 10 weeks, with a week’s half-term in October.
