Welcome to our new group on Tuesday evenings from 7-9pm in Boom Studios, Bangor (www.boomstudios.org).
Suitable for all abilities and ages from 16-100, our sessions will allow you to develop your artistic skills and enable you to produce a finished piece of art by the end of the term.
10 weeks @£10 per 2 hour session working in a thriving artists' collective surrounded by others seeking to develop their creative skills*. You can 🎨 paint, draw, sew, collage your way to a finished piece at your own pace. Just bring yourself and your ideas along.
There is a working lift in the building.
*We will have a half-term at the end of October.
Materials List: these are suggested materials but not essential or extensive
acrylic brushes, sable brushes (bristle brushes are good for covering large areas but not ideal for fine detail); brush sizes range from 01 upwards to the thickest/broadest. Choose your brushes according to the size of your canvas...small canvases require fine brushes
paints (basic colour sets usually include red, yellow, blue, white, black); canvases/ canvas panels/ canvas paper sketchbooks; a mixing palette (Boom Studios have recycled tubs we can use)
Boom Studios has a kitchen with access to running water
Again beginner sets will have a range of primary colours to which you can add more as required. You will need white spirits or turpentine to dilute your paint (please bring them in an air-tight jar for safe transportation). Brushes can be acrylic, bristle or sable (expensive option!)
Canvases, canvas panels, oil boards, canvas sketchbooks
Oil paintings may be stored in my studio between sessions.
Magazines, photos, textiles etc...anything that you need to make your finished piece! PVA glue will be available as will "glue' brushes. You can draw and paint on your collaged surface too.
