MIXED-MEDIA ART CLASSES – Tuesday afternoons 1 – 3.30 pm & Wednesday mornings 10 am – 12.30 with Barbara Valentine.  This amazing course consists of three 11 week terms and introduces the students to a full range of mixed-media with special attention to Watercolour painting. Barbara is a world renown and award winning Miniature painter and this is a unique opportunity to learn this ancient and mysterious tradition under expert guidance. Many students follow self directed projects, depending on experience, and learn new techniques adapted to individual needs. Each session has a botanical themed still life arranged for your delight, with seasonal flowers, fruit and foliage especially gathered from Barbara’s own beautiful cutting garden to inspire and enthral artistic works. All classes hold an array of practical equipment and a selection art materials needed so students can try a range of  mediums before they buy their own – advice happily given by the tutors.

Mixed-media encompasses all the art materials generally available and easily purchased from local independent suppliers including @The Crafty Norman in Battle and @In-Perspective at Bexhill. We offer our continued support to all these amazing shops for their dedication to our local and artistic communities and hope you do too.

Term One – 10 weeks – Introducing Portraiture – starting at the beginning of how to get a likeness, facial structure and anatomy, shading and texture. Working with a range of drawing mediums from pencil, ink pen, conte, chalk and charcoal, teaching traditional academic drawing through to expressive experimental at a slow easy to follow pace. Term Two – Introducing Colour – with 5 weeks each concentrating on Pastels and Watercolour Pencils, building up students skill base and confidence as well as experimenting with individuals styles and strengths. Term Three – Introducing Paint – working with Watercolour and Acrylic paints in an easy to follow gradual way, this term helps deepen the technical application as well as learning colour mixing.
