Beginners Courses – Week 5 & New Courses starting June 25th!

That’s all folks!

We’ve come to the end of the term once again and the past few weeks seem to have flown by.  The Beginners Watercolour Course 2 continued to practise their painting skills with the added challenge of drawing from three dimensional objects.  You did some fantastic paintings and really showed how much you’ve all learned during the course.  The Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 1 used oil pastels this week to create some really vibrant drawings of parrots.  Well done everyone!  I couldn’t have asked for more effort and enthusiasm from you, it paid off!  Thank you to everyone who has helped to set up/pack away at the end of lessons.  Your help is very much appreciated.

Don’t forget, all new course information can be found on our Courses for 2018 page.  If you have any questions or would like to book a place on any of the courses please get in touch on tel: 07788 871286 or email: leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk.

Hope to see you next term but if not, have a great summer!

Beginners Courses – Week 4 & New Courses starting June 25th!

Welcome back everyone!

Hope you all had a good break and enjoyed the unusual amazing weather.  This week was all about practising all the things we have already learned in the Beginners Watercolour Course 2 and beginning to work more independently.  Students produced several small scale studies of landscapes and experimented with the techniques from previous lessons.  The Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 1 had this lovely pig to draw this week using soft pastels.  Well done everyone, great work!

See you all next week for the last lesson of the current courses.  The dates for next term have now been confirmed and all new course information can be found on our Courses for 2018 page.  I am pleased to announce there will be a brand new course starting on June 25th: Beginners Portraiture Course level 2.  If you have any questions or would like to book a place on any of the courses please get in touch on tel: 07788 871286 or email: leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk.

Beginners Courses – Week 3

Hi everyone

This week the Beginners Watercolour Course 2 combined both their colour mixing and layering techniques to create these really colourful paintings of pencils.  Great work everyone, you are really getting the hang of it.  The Beginners Animal Portraiture Course 1 also used watercolour to produce these fantastic paintings of giraffes using only 5 different colours.

Don’t forget there are no classes next week.  Lessons will resume on Monday 14th May.  Enjoy the bank holiday and I’ll see you all soon.
