Art Class Description
This workshop is open to all levels of experience. Perfect for beginners, but plenty to occupy those with more experience.
Jane will focus on drawing and sketching from life, using a range of sketching tools. Participants will explore techniques using water soluble and water proof mediums, with and without watercolour. Colour mixing, working with limited palettes and exploring watercolour techniques is another major component of the workshop, with different triads and techniques employed for different locations. A sketchbook or concertina book is perfect for this course, recording the immediate surroundings in the town of Todi and looking at the details on the building materials, foliage and flowers that can be found.
Travel sketching creates fabulous memories of a place. At times vast vistas will be explored, others the shadows we see in narrow alleyways. Some time will be spent in the classroom and other times will be en plein air so the subject matter will include all we can see and find in the vicinity.
At the end of the workshop students will be encouraged to exhibit one or more completed sketches (either for sale of not), along with their sketchbooks or concertina books in an exhibition of the work by the whole class. Local artists and supporters of Art Class Italy who will attend the exhibition with a commission payable on any sales to the local gallery.
