will be given your own new Holiday Sketch Book on arrival, and
when you leave you will have at least two good sketches completed.
As with all our Art Courses, you need bring no materials. You will
be given, in addition to your Holiday Sketch Book, at least two
different pencils, one hard and the other soft - and of course, a
of all we will walk around the farmstead, outlying buildings and
rural grounds, identifying suitable sketching views, so that you
will understand what makes for a good sketch through the elements
will talk about sketches of landscapes & seascapes, and about
sketches with architectural features, perhaps agricultural, rural,
urban or ecclesiastical.
first half of the Course is given over to learning the techniques
of pencil sketching and drawing: you will experiment with two
different methods, high-key and low-key sketching. This part of
the Course will take place outdoors, as we have created a new,
purpose-built sketching garden. Your first completed sketch will
be in pencil.
second half of the Art Course takes place in the studio after
lunch. You will learn, or refresh yourself in, some techniques of
watercolour painting, followed by an introduction or refresher in
techniques of watercolour painting and washes. Your second sketch
will be a watercolour wash.
two or three completed sketches at the front of your new Sketch
Book will be permanent reminders of what you have learned during
your Art Course with Michael Moore. You will have gained an
interesting holiday pastime, and have literally at your fingertips
the very best way to remember your holiday.
Art Course is suitable for both beginners and those with some
£85.00 per day
