Art Boot Camp – NEW DATE TBC
**Email your name and contact number to firstname.lastname@example.org to join our waitlist for this workshop to be notified when it is re-scheduled**
Topics covered will be: Basic drawing skills, Watercolour painting, Wire sculpture, Air dried clay sculpture
The aim of the 2 day course is to give students an introduction to 4 separate disciplines so that they may choose to continue to learn at WWAS in any or all existing classes. Some experience would be an advantage but beginners welcome.
In Drawing the focus will be on technique, different mediums, line and shading. A still life will be completed. In Watercolours we will be enlarging your repertoire of techniques and understanding of the medium. A finished, tonally correct landscape will be completed. In wire sculpture a small wooden stand will be provided and a freestanding animal or bird will be completed. In Air dried clay a small human head will be constructed on the previous day and left to dry before Drawing is started. Hopefully this will be dry enough to demonstrate the techniques and materials used to preserve the sculpture without the need to fire it in a kiln.
Materials for students to bring
1x 9B and 4H pencils, kneaded eraser.
1/2 sheet Arches 300gsm rough watercolour paper
This workshop runs from 6 June to 1 September, from 9:30am to 4:30pm daily.
