Description of Class

There is a concession available for this course for people: Under 25's, over 65's or in full time unemployment. Details of Course: Provides a grounding in the traditional oil painting techniques and methods on which to build in order to achieve a likeness. Participants can choose to concentrate on portraiture, landscape or still life or try two or all three. This course provides set projects alongside individual tuition and covers all the basic principles of painting and drawing, i.e. composition, colour mixing and theory, line, tone, texture, proportion and anatomy and different methods of approach. The emphasis is on being able to translate into paint what you see and develop your own vision. The subject matter will be both student led and from set exercises. Suitable for all levels i.e. those with some experience who wish to continue to develop their own ideas as a follow on from previous courses and for complete beginners. What to bring - we will send students a materials list. Your tutor Juliet has an M.F.A in Fine Arts (Auckland University) and a PhD on the relationship between music and painting (University of Brighton). She works as a professional portrait painter and continues to develop her abstract painting. She has many years’ experience in teaching oil painting, printmaking, life drawing and portraiture. Testimonials 'I really enjoyed Juliet’s painting in oils course. I was a complete beginner in this medium but have painted before. Juliet was very encouraging to all of us on the course and allowed us to work at our on pace to try and achieve the goals we had set ourselves.' Vanessa, April 2024. 'I have enjoyed Juliet’s 'Painting in Oils' course over the years as a come-back student. I think all works well as a set up. The Studio at Clarkes in Bond Street is light and comfortable, and the limited number of students is good for learning the techniques of oil painting in a more approachable way. Juliet is really a good tutor with a lot of experience and all I can say is that I have learned a lot from her comments and consequently they allowed me to further develop my oil painting skills further.' Odile, 2024 "I have loved painting in oils for many years. Joining a class with a professional and encouraging tutor has been a privilege and pleasure." Barbara "I love oil painting and feel happy that I'm improving my skill. I am getting closer to freeing myself up from the technical skills so I can express myself better." Anne
