Courses description

Structured around great works of art from the 15th century to the modern day, Painting Art History combines practical painting tuition, engaging art history talks and creative group discussions in a vibrant new online format designed to enhance your creativity- wherever you are.

Each session focuses on a different theme, including: Mark-making, Chiaroscuro (the study of light and shadow), Colour theory, Colour symbolism, Emotive Palettes and Composition. These inform your hands-on studio work.

Our tutor Alice White provides a painter's perspective on art history, introducing a wide selection of drawings, prints, paintings, sculptures and installation art from across the world. Examining the techniques and approaches of fellow creatives will enhance your existing knowledge, and inform the development of a personal artistic approach. Each session concludes with a group discussion. By exchanging views, ideas and creative methods within a supportive online studio environment, you'll develop a deeper understanding of what art means to you. The course is suitable for beginners as well as those with some previous painting experience.
