The workshop will cover composition, colour, brushwork and depth, with special emphasis on layering light. After Jenny’s demonstration, students will paint a small tonal study in black and white, followed by a large colour painting. Throughout the session, Jenny will provide individual teaching and advice. Please note, the afternoon session will be a repeat of the morning’s course.
Daler-Rowney will provide each student with a System3 Studio Set containing 10x37ml tubes; an A3 System3 Artboard Pad and a System3 Brush Wallet, worth over 59(rrp).
System3 acrylics are highly versatile water-based acrylic colours with fast drying properties. They offer permanence, inter-mixability, durability, covering power and excellent lightfastness (with the exception of fluorescent colours which are by nature fugitive). They are made from high quality pigments, allowing them to be thinned with water or used directly to create an insoluble film. System3 brushes are resilient and durable; perfect for painting with acrylics. System3 Artboard Pad comprises 10 durable boards laminated with an acrylic surface paper on top and as they are 1.4mm thick, the painting will be ready to frame.
The cost of each three-hour session is just £60(inc VAT) per person and includes tuition from Jenny Aitken, Daler-Rowney materials worth over £59(rrp), PLUS free entry to Patchings Art, Craft and Design Festival for the day, worth £10.
