Painting Skyros with Sarah Jane Moon

Sun 21 Jul - Sun 28 Jul 2019

Painting Skyros is a course suitable for everyone from the experienced professional to the total beginner. You need not be expert at perspective or realistic drawing to make the most of this course; total beginners are very welcome!

We will start with drawing and recording details of the beautiful surrounds of Skyros island. There will be individual and collaborative drawing exercises that will encourage a relaxed atmosphere and allow you to explore expressive mark making. Paying attention to easy to grasp concepts such as composition, scale, mark making and narrative we will then proceed to work with our initial sketches and drawings to produce work that engages both gesture and personal expression. Sarah Jane will guide you through this process and help you along the way. The aim is to create visually rich records of your time on this idyllic Greek island that capture something of a place or scene as well as your own unique perspective. 

Sarah Jane is a patient and enthusiastic tutor with an approach that recognises and celebrates individual creativity. The emphasis in this course will be on creative use of colour and line and finding a way to express yourself visually that is uniquely your own.
