About The Course
The tuition was excellent, with lots of new ways of looking and approaches to painting. I learnt a lot which I can use in my own practice’– Caroline Smith
August 10th & 11th | Oils | 2 Days | experience in working in oils essential
10am – 4pm both days
This course will be an exciting opportunity to be tutored by a New English Art Club member and a highly inspirational artist. To start Louise will introduce her work, and outline her way of working. Throughout the two day course there will be a focus on learning to loosen up, and the importance of working quickly and directly. Students will draw outside (weather permitting) and create studies using oil on paper, concentrating on simplifying impressions and identifying the main visual ideas. We will then begin to work on a painting, or maybe more than one. There will be a critique at lunchtime on the second day.
Students will move between drawing outside and painting as they prefer, and Louise will provide one-to-one tuition and offer guidance as the students work. Some of Louise’s own work and sketchbooks, together with information about other relevant artists, will be available as reference and from which to draw inspiration and knowledge.
Much of the work will be done in our warm and well lit studio at our London HQ Trinity Buoy Wharf, there is easy access to the outside, views of the Thames and lots of sky for drawing and painting en plein air if you wish.
Includes field easels, drawing boards, palettes and good coffee.
Pay full amount or deposit.
Balance due no later than 2 weeks prior to the start of the course, see Terms and Conditions for full details.
About The Venue
Trinity Buoy Wharf
‘Great tutors, friendly hosts and fab locations, and everytime I go I meet a bunch of lovely new friends. I cannot recommend The New School of Art enough. Keep up the great work and Thank you.’ – Abigail 2017
Our London HQ at Trinity Buoy Wharf is the School’s permanent home, forming part of the creative quarter of London’s Docklands. The small but perfectly formed first floor studio overlooks the Thames and across to the Millennium Dome, with far reaching views and surrounded by a lively creative community.
With plenty of natural light our well equipped studio is a wonderful place to paint in and with lots of outside space this location works well for plein air painting also.
