Shropshire Council

Vegetation and colour - art classes with Angela Gladwell MA (Royal College of Art)

Event details

  • Price: £96 per term
  • Venue: Ludlow Museum Resource Centre

We haven’t concentrated on colour specifically before. This theme can cover all types of vegetable and plant life. We can take advantage of autumn colours and winter dead leaves and the structure of bare trees. We can include fruit, vegetables, fungi and flowers according to what may be available. 

The course will follow our usual pattern of the first term being for observation studies, which are helpful for improving drawing and painting skills and good practice with organising materials. However we'll also work with colour just as itself to fully appreciate the possibilities it offers.  The second term will be for producing a finished composition. Final work can be approached as straightforward still life, botanical studies, surreal visions or graphic designs and patterns.

Course participants will need to bring watercolour oil or acrylic materials for the first session, as well as basic drawing equipment. 

The course is suitable for all abilities, and tuition is on an individual basis.
