Explore more!




A new online painting course this Autumn.

As a GOLDEN artist educator I enjoyed experimenting more with painting and layering techniques in order to developed a new painting course. The online course is extended to four weeks in order to fit in more content, it replaces the sell out Chaos to Calm course of 2015.

Why do I teach art in this way?

Online courses offer a very different way of learning, with time being the biggest advantage. I am able to fit much more content in an e-course than in a weekend long painting workshop. People can view the tutorials and do the projects in their own time within the four week long course. The option to revisit projects afterwards for another eight weeks is an added bonus, allowing more time to repeat projects or use techniques for different art projects. To aid with communication and feedback, there is a dedicated Facebook closed group, acting as a virtual classroom. Students from all over the world do the course, and this is yet another added element to the course. People can post work in the group page, ask questions, and see what their fellow students do in response to the different projects.
A live element is now added with two live periscope sessions being offered where I will also demonstrate techniques used in the projects.

Explore Colour: The Still Life Course.

This four week long art course consists of a collection of still life themed projects. There is a strong focus on using drawings created in alternative ways, for inspiration and combining them with a variety of painting techniques to create expressive paintings. Colour is also a vital component of this course, used within the theme of still life painting in order to push boundaries and explore creative possibilities.

How does the course work?
Over the four weeks, students will explored painting and creating techniques within the different projects linked to a still life theme. Developing of individual artistic styles are important, with colour exploring and a range of painting techniques explained in various demos. The limited selection of GOLDEN fluid paint, as found in the principal set of 10 colours, is used in all the projects. Este will demonstrate how she uses it in her own paintings to obtain ‘visual texture’, paint in layers, do printing and stamping techniques as well as drawing, collaging and mixed media projects. Video painting demonstrations are used to explain techniques and ideas.  

Alternative drawing projects are used to discover or develop creativity in new ways. 

New projects added to this course explore composition and colour moods, different painting styles and additional applications of layering and techniques including acrylic skins.

‘The Still Live Course” sticks to a general still life theme in order to keep the focus on developing painting techniques and the basics of colour theory to discover possibilities that will be useful for individual artists; practices, regardless of their style of subject matter.

Artists of all descriptions will benefit from this course, regardless of ability and experience. 
If you love colour, want to develop your range of abilities, from colour sense to painting techniques, this month long course might just be for you.

Practicalities
A class portal on www.explorecolour.com will be accessible with a password. Video demos and instructions will be posted from this page.

A Facebook closed group page will be available to act as a virtual classroom where work can be shared, for questions and general communication.
