Men! This Art course has been created especially for you!

 

Art has scientifically proven links to improving the mind and brain including; increasing plasticity, boosting memory, critical thinking as well as problem solving.

 

If you have time on your hands or are even retired and would like to keep your brain alert, why not take up a new challenge; drawing and painting could be your new hobby. 

 

Art House Art School is not one of those places that all the students draw or paint the same pretty picture or follow an instructors demonstration, there are plenty other classes 

that offer this.

 

Here at the Art School you will learn the skills and techniques in order to create your own unique Art Works that you can be proud of have mounted, framed and hung.

 

These sessions are learner centred therefore you can explore both materials and subjects that inspire you.

 

Katrina is on hand to support, challenge and stretch you, so that you can develop your skills to become a proficient artist.

This course is currently Monday 1.30pm - 3.30pm  Includes Refreshments & Materials.

(Canvasses and watercolour paper extra). 

First session Free. £15 per session.

TUESDAY - 'Foundation Approach'

Field trips, end of term parties and workshops including portraiture and costume-life; what-ever is appropriate for the project in hand all culminating in an end of year art exhibition.

* Qualified Artist & Art Teacher

Have you always wanted to draw, paint, make art ? Or would like a new hobby that you can really dive into and explore? this could be the Art Course for you!

 

This is an exciting and fast paced practical course underpinned with historical context throughout. Experimentation is encouraged with a wide range of materials and media on hand including; pencils, Inks, pastels, watercolours, acrylics, collage materials and various forms of printing.

Each year the themes change so you may continue to attend year after year, developing as an artist, or use the course as a stepping stone to create a portfolio for HE courses, employment prospects, or simply for your own personal creative fulfilment. 

 

The pace of sessions is learner-led so you may choose to either work steadily in your own time, or if you would like a challenge, Katrina will  work with you to set targets and drive yourself at a more intense rate. There is also a strong camaraderie within the group, supporting peers is an integral part of the process.

Each student is supplied with a sketchbook for ideas and concepts; these are then developed into final artworks culminating in the end of year art exhibition. There are also field trips, end of term parties and workshops including portraiture and costume-life; what-ever is appropriate for the project in hand. 

 

The commitment is one day a week, as with everything, ‘the more you put into your art the more you get out’. That being said we all have busy lives so it is really up to you how much time you spend on your art work outside of your class-time, some students do lots at home others just work in The Art School.
