If you are serious about art and want to improve your artwork and your understanding of art, I strongly recommend my workshop programme.

The course will result in improved skill, more confidence in one’s abilities and an increased desire to create original artworks.

The period between childhood and adulthood is the time you get to know yourself and your personality develops. If, during this time, you have a good relationship with art your artistic development will take shape. This is a very important time.

During this time by studying the basics of art more closely you will discover the art talent within you.

The Basic Elements of Painting

The basics of art education include line, shape, place, colour, three dimensional representation and visual perception.

The foundation of art comes from the Bauhaus Movement and Johannes Itten’s lessons.

The aim of art education is to teach students the principles of art based on visual design principles.

The first art courses were started in London by Maurice de Sausmares, Harry Thrubson, Tom Hudson, Victor Pasmore and Richard Hamilton. Victor Pasmore claimed that having lessons in the basics of art would help with scientific studies too.

Why a basic art education is so important and why it is needed:

The foundation of art is creativity and the expression of the imagination. The fundamentals of art are very important and allow us to use our feelings and thoughts to create art which can be shared with everyone. This is why an art education is so important and we can see this in the foundation of all the visual arts.

Knowledge of different techniques will allow you to produce both classic and original pieces.

To be able to objectively understand and compare past and present artwork and be able to identify both.
Artwork needs to be original and not an imitation or copy of someone else’s work.
To know both national and international artwork.
This will help to understand the language of art.
The aim of an education in art is to understand the essence of art. Each individual needs to have their artistic and cultural requirements monitored.

When it is viewed from this angle the study of the creation of art has got 3 different stages:

The knowledge stage.

The creative thinking stage.
The artistic expression stage.

In art education it is important to focus on creativity at all times and to improve critical thinking. The personal development and education of each individual student will be encouraged.

The aims of an art education are:

  1. To educate each individual to create their own art.
  2. To teach appreciation and taking pleasure from art.
 
In light of this, I use a process combining feelings and thoughts to create art in the workshop. At the beginning of the programme my students will be assessed using the worldwide benchmark to ascertain their level of artistic talent. This will be passed on to their parents or guardians. At the end of the programme they will be reassessed to measure their improvement.
 

These things can be done by a family to encourage their children to appreciate art:

  • Either your child is gifted at art or just enjoys art, but in both cases the important thing is to encourage your child as necessary.
  • It is a good idea to introduce them to art from an early age.
  • Take your child to galleries and exhibitions
  • Have art equipment at home (and at school) and show them how to use this for projects.
  • As a family take an interest in all forms of art.
  • Read art books and subscribe to art magazines.
  • Visit museums and special exhibitions.

To release the artist within you come to my workshops:

COLOUR     “Now Forget Everything You Ever Know.”

Understanding the Meaning of Colours.

The meaning of colours can vary depending on culture and circumstances.

Each colour has many aspects to it but you can easily learn the language of colour by understanding a few simple concepts which I will teach you here

Colour is a form of non verbal communication. It is not a static energy and its meaning can change from one day to the next with any individual – it all depends on what emotions you’re feelings they are at that point in time.

Colour is an element of art that involves light. It is produced when light waves strike an object and is reflected into our eyes.
