Course Description

Drawing and Painting Mixed Media

Call Vale Courses 01446 773831 to book your place.

A friendly and relaxed art course designed for anyone from absolute beginners wanting to learn the basics to artists wishing to improve or learn new techniques will find what they need - and make new friends in the process.   

 

You can learn to paint with watercolours, oils and acrylics, try your hand at figurative drawing or simply learn to draw with media such as charcoal, soft pencil, pastel and ink.

 

We always start by discussing where you are at, where you would like to go and what you would like to achieve during the classes (experimenting with different mediums or concentrating on just one). If you already have some painting/drawing projects you are welcome to bring these with you.

 

 

Meet the Artist - Christine Lloyd

As an artist I have spent all of my life participating in creative practice. I draw from observation and have a passion for illustration and printing. From an early age my portfolio has opened many doors for me that has led to a successful career as a graphic designer in the screen printing industry and a fulfilling role as a lecturing artist for the creative industries. As an academic I have been lucky enough to share my practice with a variety of learners who I have encouraged with my enthusiasm for the arts. Many of whom are now practicing artists. 

 

I have studied at the Royal Drawing School in London with Francis Hoyland and Louise Sturgis. This experience gave me the confidence to explore all aspects of drawing. I am currently developing my drawing expertise by observing movement. This is a process I am beginning to explore by emulating etchings by Anthony Gross whose observations of movement are very evident in his work. I feel print making lends itself instinctively to my expressions of movement and enhances the energy I capture in these images. 

 

Further experimentation with acrylic and oil painting has developed out of my printed images. I try to transfer the vibrancy of the print images to the paintings. I feel this is a common strand which is present throughout my work. This practice has been formed out of my passion for drawing. My initial observations, my familiarity with the composition, my observations of movement and then the more precise marks I make give me the clarity I need to record the instance presented before me.
