Art of Colour

Rachel Cohen

Be inspired by colour! This course introduces a range of techniques for working with colour including acrylic painting, coloured inks, collage, mixed media and pastels. With inspiration from historical and contemporary artists, both representational and abstract, you will learn to use colour to work from observation and your own self-expression. You will have the opportunity to experiment with different scales inspired by a range of still life set ups. We’ll spend two sessions drawing outside of the studio in locations such as the museum or park.

Suitable for all abilities.

Student comment about the tutor: I’ve really enjoyed your drawing course this term. As a self-taught beginner, I’ve never had chance to explore techniques or other materials or drawing styles, so it’s been great to try out new things with your thoughtful guidance. I’ve really appreciated how much thought and care you put into the sessions, and I can see my own drawing at home has developed and I’m enjoying a wider range of expression in my own sketch pad.’
