During this four-week course, participants will explore the different effects that can be achieved through working with colour. Using pencils, pastels, ink and watercolour, demonstrations will focus on a range of mark-making techniques and approaches, experimenting with the colour properties of each medium. Taking place in Camden Arts Centre’s Drawing Studio and Garden, we will draw inspiration from current exhibitions as well as artists including Pierre Bonnard and David Hockney. There will be opportunities to work from life models and time to pursue personal projects using the techniques demonstrated and materials provided.
• This course is suitable for all levels and abilities.
• All materials and equipment are included.
• This course is four full days, over four consecutive weeks.
• There will be a break for lunch between 1.00pm and 2.00pm each day. Lunch is not provided.
