BEGIN PAINTING! (Week 2) with Christine Gregory - Summer School

Christine is one of Inverlochy’s tutors who has successfully encouraged many people to fulfill their wish to either take up painting for the first time or to return to painting after a time away. The workshops will run for 3 days each week and cover the very basics in how to begin painting.

DAY ONE: What is paint, how do we move it around. Understanding colour and how to apply it to have the maximum effect. First painting: applying these principles in an expressive and experimental manner.

DAY TWO: An introduction to drawing techniques and how to transfer your drawings onto a canvas. Second Painting: A simple still life. Building on the understanding of colour and application of brush strokes to create a vibrant painting.

DAY THREE: An introduction to Landscape painting. How to see and respond to Landscape as a subject. How to explore and create an individual image. 

WEEK TWO: A repeat of the first week. For returning students, this will be a chance  to further your progress in the subject of your own choice.

All materials are provided by Inverlochy.
