Paint like Van Gogh
a weekend workshop with Belinda Ireland
Saturday 7 & Sunday 8 July 2018
10 am - 4 pm
Art Studio, on the second floor
(to include all materials and media (oil paint)
Come and spend an enjoyable two days painting a Master Copy of a Vincent Van Gogh painting to take home.
There is such a lot to learn by making a Master copy of a Master piece. On this course you will learn how to paint in the style of Van Gogh, how to achieve the same colour range, and how to further develop the technique into your own painting. You will also learn more widely about colour and how it can be used, how to transfer a drawing into a painting, and about the visual elements that all 2-d artists work with such as composition, perspective, dynamics etc. For this workshop we will be working with oil paint. If you have never used oil paint this will be a good introduction to this traditional media used by Van Gogh, or an opportunity to further your existing skills with oils.
On the Saturday you can enjoy food and drink from the Harbour House Café. On Sunday you will need to bring your own food and refreshments.
Over the years Belinda has taught a wide range of classes to all ages, in groups and privately. Previously she has worked for Plymouth Adult and Community Learning teaching Oil Painting and Life Drawing. For the last 6 years she has been teaching popular classes in oil painting, drawing and running a children’s art club at Ilminster Art Centre. Now back in the South Hams, Belinda has a studio with Red Pod Studios at the Clay Factory and is looking forward to teaching at Harbour House.
