Art Classes Dublin: New 6 week term starting 6th and 8th September 2022
“Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.” – Twyla Tharp
This is the philosophy of this class. At every class, I’ll demonstrate with a small, quick study. You see the process from start to finish. Then you’ll paint a small still life or landscape study at every class. This way, you’ll experience the entire procedure at every class and you’ll soak in the process far more quickly. I’ve endless patience and I’ll always be there to jump in and re-show techniques or bring your painting study back on track.
No more wondering where to start as if every painting is an entirely new experience. The method I teach will help with ALL your paintings from start to finish.
It’s not as difficult as you think – less difficult than painting from photographic references. In fact, you’ll find that it frees you up.
I have a background in the printing industry, where we use a limited array of colours which I’ve adapted for my student palette. Learn this and you’ll adapt to the traditional colours much more easily.
I’ll simplify your materials list. I’ll explain the difference between mediums and various qualities – and I’ll advise on what you need to buy to achieve great results in your work. You’ll also learn how to set up your own painting space.
A fundamental skill for any artist, I’ll teach you the way to achieve likenesses by measuring and re-working.
There are many variables to grasp in painting but the principal one is tone. Painting still lifes teaches you how to see it, express it and absorb it.
