What to expect at your first class as an absolute beginner:
- First and foremost, we will have a conversation about what you want to achieve out of your sessions.
- You will learn to understand the basics of paint. For example, how to build up paint on the canvas.
- You will learn the basics of drawing and how to map out your subject matter on canvas.
- I will give a demonstration on colour mixing.
- You will learn to effectively interpret your reference material.
- After the first class, you will continue to work on your painting. During our sessions, students will also receive custom-made canvases and learn how to prime and prepare the surface for painting another piece on.
- Continue to paint. I will regularly critique student's work during sessions to help them evolve as an artist.
This can be achieved through painting a number of different works.
