Summary

Taking inspiration from past masters, learn a range of skills and techniques through drawing, painting, and printmaking. The course focuses on developing your observational skills through the subject of still life. You will be developing your ability to draw what you see, use colour, tone and composition effectively and gain mastery over materials. New techniques are demonstrated each week by the tutor and your work is developed through continuous one-to-one support and guidance while you work. Dan McDermott (BA, MA) has over 25 years’ experience as a professional artist working primarily in painting and printmaking. He has exhibited extensively on an international basis and his work can be found in private and corporate art collections worldwide. Dan has broad experience as an art teacher, working in diverse sectors including adult education, further education, social care, and schools. He has helped many of his students to experience increased well-being, develop their skills and confidence, initiate sustainable art careers, exhibit in public and achieve placements in further education and higher education.

What do I need to join?

No formal qualifications or experience are necessary, but some previous drawing experience would be useful. Bring an apron, protective shirt or clothing that you don’t mind getting the odd splash of paint on.

How will I know how I am doing?

You will learn by observing demonstrations, through regular tutorials and group discussions, and by exploring new techniques with expert support. You will learn a great deal by experimenting and recording your own progress. You will have access to a dedicated specialist tutor who will help you throughout the course. Your tutor will always check your progress and help you with technical solutions, also offering regular one-to-one tutorials. The class will participate in informal group evaluations/discussions.

What can I do next?

You can return to the class to improve your skills and develop your practice, or join another class.
