Art Courses starting in September 2011

ART CLASSES IN SEPTEMBER at Golden Grove Church Hall, Llandeilo

Classes restart the week beginning September 12th. Classes for improvers ( those with some experience ) will run as follows:
Mondays 2.00 – 4.30 (places available)
Tuesdays 10.30- 1.00 (places available)
Thursdays 10.30 – 1.00 (full)

We are going to return to the topic of Painting/Framing Wales. The aim is to introduce us to or build on our knowledge of prominant contemporary artists who live or have lived and worked in Wales. We shall explore and discuss their work and the  techniques used in their paintings. We shall draw on their subject matter for inspiration and methods of working. Media will be down to personal choice but will include oils and watercolour.
Each of us is going to research an artist. I think a mimimum of two sides A4 including some images will be fine. If you are really interested and want to do more than that perhaps a few of you might like to give a short ( ten minutes ) talk ? Work will go into a ring binder and used as a class resource.

I am planning on talking to Jones International and arranging a trip to Cardiff Galleries to include The National Museum of Wales, The Martin Tinney Gallery, The Albany Gallery and The Koywood Gallery. There is a ‘regular’ service on Saturdays and some Thursdays that we could take advantage of ( £10) or if we have enough people we could hire a coach on a day we would prefer.

David Cowdry has kindly agreed to do another oil painting domonstration, possibly a snow scene. We thoroughly enjoyed the last one and learned so much.



I would also like to start a  new class for absolute beginners- Drawing and painting in watercolour to run Wednesdays 10.00 – 1.00. And to include the activities above.
Cost for a ten week term is £70 to include some materials for the beginners course.

Further details about the beginners course will follow but if you think you may be interested in any of the classes please be in touch now.
