Beginners Courses – Week 1


Welcome back everyone!  And welcome to all our new students too!

Hope you’ve all had a good summer.  You were certainly all ready to get stuck into some arty stuff this week.  It’s great to see you all so enthusiastic and eager to learn and hopefully the first lesson wasn’t as scary as you thought it might be.

We kicked off the new term with the Beginners Watercolour Course 2 who practised colour mixing and a few techniques to help them throughout the course.  The Beginners Drawing Course Level 2 explored tone and how it can be used to transform flat shapes into 3D objects.  The Beginners Drawing from Nature Course did some enlarged watercolour paintings of pebbles and the Beginners Drawing Course Level 1 used basic shapes and shading to build up drawings of natural forms.  Fantastic work everyone!  A really good start to the new term and I’m looking forward to seeing what you can create over the next few weeks.  Remember if you want to comment on anything on this website, anything you’ve done in class or anything else to do with Leeds Art Group then simply click on “Leave a comment”.

See you all next week.
