Courses for adults
Unlock the Secrets of
Drawing & Painting
Wednesdays 7pm - 9pm,
Thursdays 10am -12pm
Art with Ali for Adults, I teach the fundamental skills of drawing and painting such as mark-making, line, tone, composition, scale, colour mixing and paint handling while encouraging my students to embrace their natural way of seeing and to develop their own style. I believe that technical skills are not an end in themselves but a way of supporting our artistic vision and unlocking our potential.
Each course is eight week’s long and runs in line with school term dates. The first four week block will be devoted to drawing skills and the following, after the half term, to painting. Over the course of an academic year, students will be introduced to a range of media: including graphite, ink, collage, charcoal, pastels, watercolour, gouache, acrylic and oil paint.
These classes are aimed towards those who have an interest in creating art but have never taken art classes, or for those who haven't done any art for a while and wish to revisit their passion. Young adults who are thinking of applying to art schools would also benefit.
The classes are relaxing, supportive, informative and you will be amazed at what you can achieve.
If unable to commit to the entire course, you are welcome, if you give me a couple of days’ notice, to drop in for single sessions.
It is £160 for each eight-week block, or you can drop-in for £22.50 per session. All materials and refreshments are included.
