Painting 2: Relating to Other Artists Course - Online
The course aims to deepen understanding of painting techniques; introduce different subjects and attitudes to painting; help students understand how their work relates to that of other artists; strengthen self-reliance and the ability to express attitudes to the visual world through a personal visual language.
This course builds on Painting 1: Starting to Paint. It investigates in greater depth ideas introduced at Level 1 and it places greater responsibility on students for the choice of painting subjects and how to approach them. More time is also spent on each painting. You will be introduced to watercolour and explore new ways of using acrylics and oils. You will also be comparing your work with that of other artists and studying a number of paintings in detail.
- Abstraction and abstract painting
- Painting detail
- Figure painting
- Using watercolours
- Urban and rural landscapes
