If you have the impulse to paint, but, don’t know where to start, or find the prospect daunting, this might be the class for you.
On this course, Sinead shares her process of creating a still life painting in oil paint. Sinead’s main focus is helping her students to understand the different qualities of their materials e.g. how to mix colours consistently, different ways to apply paint, and how to create texture. Becoming comfortable with the medium of oils is the goal and subsequently exploring the different ways this medium can be used and enjoyed.
At the Schoolhouse for Art you will find an environment free from judgement, that will nurture you on your learning journey.
*The classes are ‘hybrid’ which means they are available online or in person.
The painter who stands before an empty canvas must think in terms of paint. What counts in making art is the actual fit between the contents of your head and the qualities of your materials. The knowledge you need to make that fit, comes from noticing what really happens as you work, the way the materials respond, and the way that response and resistance suggest new ideas to you. It’s those real and ordinary changes that matter.
