A three-day intensive course to learn how to turn your drawings and sketches into paintings, under the expert tuition of Simon Carter, painter and President of Colchester Arts Society.

Materials provided. All abilities welcome.

Day one
Visit locations around Firstsite and Castle Park to sketch and draw directly from the landscape, with guidance and suggestions from Simon. In the afternoon you’ll have the opportunity to assess and develop your wide range of sketches further.

Day two
Discover the techniques Simon uses to create paintings, in a presentation and demonstration exploring how he maintains the energy of his original drawings. Practice and experiment with some of these skills on the sketches produced in day one.

Day three
Explore and develop your painting and mark making skills over a full day in the studio. Simon will provide guidance in translating the immediacy of your drawings and sketches into paintings, furthering your understanding of the process.
