Explore ways of drawing and painting with joy and confidence.

The Barnes through Painting and Drawing course will concentrate on images found in and around Barnes (this includes buildings, street scenes, people, trees, parks and the River Thames). We will use photographic images to work from and occasionally, if the weather allows, go sketching outside.

Various drawing and painting techniques will be explored, which will include pencil, coloured pencil, pen & ink, conté, crayons, pastel, watercolours, gouache and acrylics.

Teaching methods include: practical demonstrations, practical hands on experience, exchanging ideas and experience with others, keeping a sketchbook, looking at the work of inspirational artists within an art history context, formal instruction, individual tuition, personal and group critiques.
