“Inspired” – Week 2

Hi folks

A very colourful week this week.  We looked at the stained glass work of Louis Comfort Tiffany and used his  style to translate our own pictures of flowers into watercolour paintings.  Some really beautiful paintings everyone with such vibrant colours!  Worthy of any Art Nouveau lampshade.  Hope you all enjoyed painting them.

Here are some photos of this weeks work, for more photos visit our instagram page @leedsartgroup.

See you all next week.

Thank you!

Hi again

I almost forgot to say a big thank you to you all on behalf of The Trussell Trust who provide vital foodbanks across the UK.  Through donating 10% of your course fees to the trust, together we’ve managed to raise £161!  It’s lovely to know Leeds Art Group have done our bit to help a few people put Christmas dinner on the table this year.  So thank you all for being lovely!

For further information about The Trussell Trust and the work they do please visit their website here:  https://www.trusselltrust.org/

“Inspired” – Week 1

Hi everyone

Welcome back for a new term and a brand new course and this time we get to use colour – hurray!  This week we used mostly oil pastels to create our own versions of Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”.  What fantastic drawings you’ve all been sending me!  I’ve loved seeing your pictures this week and it sounds like you’ve enjoyed this task, it certainly shows in your work.  Well done everyone.  Even more colour next week!

Here are some photos of this weeks work, for more photos visit our instagram page @leedsartgroup.

See you soon

“Pencil and Paper” Part 4 – Week 5 & new courses starting October 2020!

Hi folks

This week was sadly the last week of the current term but you pulled out all the stops and put everything you’ve learned into your drawings.  This week we used items from the bathroom as our subject.  All those different bottles, tubes and brushes in various shapes, sizes, tones and textures gave us a lot to work with.  Fantastic work everyone!  I can really see how much observation and consideration you’ve put into these drawings.  You’ve taken everything we’ve covered in the course and put it into practice.  Great stuff!

Here are some photos of this weeks work, for more photos visit our instagram page @leedsartgroup.

Don’t forget, the next online courses “Inspired” Online Beginners Art Course will be starting on Monday 12th October 2020 and this time we’ll get to use some colour!  So get in touch if you would like to book a place.  Full course details can be found on the Courses for 2020 page by clicking here.  If you have any questions you can contact me by email at:  leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk or tel:  07788 871286.

See you soon
