We are grateful for the support and interest received in the online art school classes over the last six months. A new but necessary departure from our usual way of teaching. The response has been extremely postive, we have welcomed the enthusiasm as we embarked on something very different in way of presenting our classes, whilst continuing to embrace the considerable benefits involvement with painting and drawing can bring.

 

Many have enjoyed the online experience, finding the flexibility, the opportunity of teaching from a distance – even Scarborough, Cambridge and Cornwall, along with the convenience of dipping in and out of the teaching sessions, unlike the single visit to the class at Patchings.

 

With the news of a vaccine we look forward with eager anticipation to some normality ahead. But there remains uncertainty and the likely-hood of matters such as social distancing still being a requirement for the foreseeable future. Our plan is to continue the Online courses for the Spring term, with the flexibility of introducing a blended learning approach should the situation allow in the next and future terms. 

 

During next term, we will be extending our methods of presenting the classes by including such options as attending Zoom sessions, something we have tested with a positive feedback during the Autumn term. Enabling conversations about your work has proven very popular.

 

To help us manage the day to day running of Patchings, especially during the recent Tier 3 times and our closure, we offer a discounted subscription for those interested in registering for the year, when we continue to arrange usual three terms of classes – Spring, Summer and Autumn – each of four monthly sessions.

The single term registration is £55 for the Spring Term 2021.
The annual discounted rate is £150 for 3 terms of Spring, Summer and Autumn 2021.

OIL PAINTING SESSIONS

Oil Painting with Tutor Liz Wood

Inspired by landscapes with the wonderful colour and texture of oil paint

Monet recommended looking at nature as the best way to learn to paint. We will be responding to that whilst considering a selection of great artists with a view to seeing if perhaps we can put a new perspective on some of their work!

As last term each of the four sessions concludes with a video commentary of finished pieces and a gallery of work, published on the website.
