We’re starting a brand new course for the Spring Term 2015, ‘The Alchemy of Oil Painting’ with Miriam Escofet.
She says ‘This class will focus on classical and historic techniques of oil painting; covering drawing, ground preparation, underpainting and glazes. Through a series of set projects you will look at tone, colour, process and application. We will work from still life, the model and historical material, with scope for personal work and experimentation. Each project will be held over several weeks to allow for in-depth work. You will explore mixing and creating materials and painting mediums and have the opportunity to try out complementary media like tempera. It will be suitable for all levels, but especially for those with some painting experience who want to deepen their understanding’.
