Painting at North Yorks Art School - Thursday Evening

Next: Thursday, January 27th, 2022

Runs until Thursday, April 28th, 2022 (See all dates)

6:00pm - 8:30pm
North Yorks Art School, Scarborough, YO11 2BP

This general painting class (using oil or acrylic) is suitable for beginners who have never painted before. It's also recommended for people with more experience who want access to tuition and advice.

More Information (This is the Coast is not responsible for external websites)

 Beginners and more experienced painters alike will focus on colour and tone while looking at reproductions of master works which they will recreate (transpose). Those that prefer still life painting can set something up. Painters will be shown how to mix paint and to think about application and technique. Thick, thin, scribbly, orderly, gestural, blended - they will learn how to control paint by breaking down the processes. Regular attendance to these pay-as-you-go classes will help painters develop their skills.

Table easels and white spirit are provided and stretched canvas is available to buy in class: 50x40cm (ideal size) at £5 each. Alternatively, painters can buy their own canvas in The Works in Scarborough town centre. Bring oil or acrylic paints, a set of brushes and anything else required. The best thing to do is give the class a try and the tutor Chris Shaw can begin to tailor repeat visits to the needs of individual budding painters.
