The Seasons Art Class is nearing the end of its 14 week long part-time Spring painting course in Bournemouth and will soon be holding an exhibition of the student’s work.
Adrian Kay from The Seasons Art Class commented “This is the first course we have held in Bournemouth and we’ve been really delighted with the feedback. We were over-subscribed and in the end we had to limit the numbers, but we’re finding that many of the pupils have already booked onto future courses with us, and recommended us to their friends as well. I couldn’t be happier with the way things have turned out and I’m delighted with the quality of work that the pupils are producing. It gets better and better each week”.
Adrian went on to mention that the tuition is ideal for both complete beginners who have never had any drawing or painting lessons before, and those artists who have already had some training in the past but now want to improve and progress onto the next stage.
The Teaching Format
Each term lasts for a total of 14 weeks with students attending one 3 hour class a week, covering everything from pencil drawing and sketching, to blending and painting with oil pastels, watercolours and acrylics. And each week builds on what the students have already been taught and follows a structured but relaxed format, enabling them to quickly develop and have fun at the same time.
Amanda the principal tutor patiently talks the students through each project and then provides a step-by-step demonstration which the class copy under her close supervision, offering extra help and adapting to each pupil’s needs when required so that everyone produces a finished painting they are proud of.
And to help them on their way, everyone is given a set of full colour printed notes at the end of each session to remind them of what they have been shown that day.
Adrian says “They finish every lesson on a real high, genuinely amazed at what they’ve been able to paint, and the written notes we give out encourage them to practice when they get home if they want to”.
With a friendly, sociable atmosphere that is both welcoming and professional, the classes are proving a real success, and are a great way to meet new friends too.
The Summer Course which is open to adults of all ages, is due to start in Bournemouth soon and places are still available for both the morning and afternoon sessions. If you would like to come along and join in the fun, you can find out more by telephoning 01202-580909.
