Sunday 21 January 2018
Time: 10am to 4pm
Cost: £35 per person (includes all materials)
It's not too early to start thinking of your New Year resolutions - and why not make 2018 the year to learn something new at one of our workshops?
At this one-day class artist Kevin Nutter will be taking us through the techniques of speed painting and how to get amazing results in a short space of time.
Inspired by the style of American artist Bob Ross the day will start with an introduction and demonstration of the techniques, showing you stage by stage how the painting builds up. You'll be shown how to handle the paint and what brushes to use as well as ideas about colour choice and mixing, paint effects, tonal values, perspective, light and shadow. Each participant will then by guided through stage by stage on their own canvas with Kevin on hand to give more examples and guidance.
Finally you will the have the chance to create your own painting on a new canvas using the techniques you have learned.
All materials and equipment will be provided. It is advisable to wear old clothes or those you don't mind getting paint on! There will be a break for lunch - the FAC café sells tea, coffee, soft drinks and cakes but please bring a packed lunch.
Places are limited and booking in advance is essential.
