Painting with Acrylic This is a painting course which will help you get the most out of painting with acrylics. As a painting medium Acrylic offers excellent flexibility and is great for beginners but is also used increasingly by many professional artists. Mixed with water it paints like watercolour or used straight from the tube for an effect like oils. Learn to layer paint to enrich colours, create depth, explore composition and the many other techniques to create a successful painting.
Next Painting with Acrylic weekend art course:
Sat/Sun 26 & 27 April 2014 - places available.
"Well Balenced" - an acrylic painting on wood by Nicola Slattery.
On all of Nicola Slattery's art courses you will be encouraged to find and develop your own style and approach to art.
Art from Imagination: Although similar to the weekend acrylic painting art courses the emphasis on this particular art course is all about creating art from your own imagination. We will explore inspiration for creating art from a variety of sources including dreams, others artists, literature, photographs, etc. You will be encouraged to consider alternative perspectives and compositions while also learning the basics of painting with acrylics. As with all of Nicola Slattery's art courses no previous experience is required... just a willingness to have a go!
Next Art from Imagination art course:
Sat/Sun 5 & 6 July 2014 - places available.
Imagination plays a vital part in Nicola Slattery's work as can be seen in her painting "Riding the Fish Home". On her art courses you will be encouraged to develop and work with your own ideas and styles in a supportive, relaxed and enjoyable way.
This weekend art course is a great introduction to two very exciting and versatile techniques. Collagraph and Drypoint are different approaches which are direct and can easily be mastered to produce limited edition prints safely without chemicals, acids or technical know how. Nicola Slattery has written about these techniques for several art magazines and introduced them to over a thousand people including many other professional artists and complete beginners. Expect to produce several hand made limited edition prints on this art course using each technique. Beginners are very welcome but the weekend is also be ideal for anyone already familiar with some aspects of printmaking and who want to develop their expertise further. Drypoint and Collagraph will be the main techniques but with elements of Chine Colle and other embellishments being introduced as appropriate.
Next Printmaking Weekend art course:
Sat/Sun 14 & 15 June 2014 - places available.
"Companion" is the title of this collagraph print.
A few words about: Printmaking
Collagraph and Drypoint are quite different approaches but both can be employed to create limited edition prints safely without the use of chemicals or acids. Even if you are completely new to printmaking you can expect to produce several limited edition prints using each technique on a printmaking weekend art course. Nicola Slattery knows these techniques very well having written about them for national art magazines and demonstrated and taught them to many complete beginners as well as other professional artists... the techniques are very accessible, safe AND a lot of fun!
Art Course participants ink and wipe their printmaking plates ready to print on one of Nicola Slattery's popular and inspirational Printmaking art courses.
