Art Class Information

Booking is essential - maximum 8 students in any one class
Art lessons with Lynda Cookson at The Painter's Palette Studio are for absolute beginners (who'd like to give painting a try) as well as for established artists (who may wish to break a stale streak or take on the challenge of loosening up their technique).

THE STUDIO PROVIDES study paper, paints, mediums and any other accessories relevant to the lesson of the day. 

We use oil paints during the lessons but students may use acrylics if they wish.

Watercolour lessons are arranged separately and will be available if there is sufficient demand. 

Students use my brushes and palette knives.

STUDENTS PROVIDE their own canvases and/or boards and/or painting surfaces. It's always a good idea to bring spares as well.

SUGGESTION : Pack a black bag or two, or old newspapers, in your car for transporting wet paintings home. Alternatively THE STUDIO PROVIDES a limited number of drying shelves if you wish to leave your paintings in the studio between lessons. Also, please wear old clothing and shoes.

THE STUDIO ALSO PROVIDES tea, coffee and biscuits (or cake, if you're lucky!) plus a wardrobe of TShirts to cover clothing if you have forgotten to put old clothing on. Old shoes are good too ... just in case we do messy things at floor level!
 
One and Two Day Workshop information coming soon! 

When:
Wednesday mornings  :  10 am to 1 pm
Wednesday evenings   :  7 pm to 10 pm

Price: €100 per month, payable in advance or on the first lesson of the month.

Where: La Ville Oger, 56120 Lantillac, Bretagne

What to expect from each lesson:
We begin with an hour-long Study Painting, tackling a fresh technique each time, such as Composition, Perspective, Painting Process, Patterns, Shapes, Colour Mixing, Blending, etc.
For the remaining two hours -
Students may choose to continue with the Study Painting techniques, completing as many paintings on study paper as they feel they need to in order to become comfortable with the technique or painting rule from that lesson; 
or
Students may continue with a formal painting on their own canvas or board, using a subject or inspiration of their choice, under guidance. The Studio has a library of images for inspiration, if you do not have something of your own you'd like to work with.

There is a maximum of 8 students per class to allow for each student to receive plenty of personal attention.

There is always a Still Life subject, fresh each week, set up to work from, with plenty of items in stock for students to create their own Still Life study if they wish.



Private Lessons

 STANDARD COURSE INFORMATION:

 


Generally, I encourage established artists and would-be artists to loosen up and let the energy come into their work .... the "Breaking Barriers" lessons. Students are guided to find their own style of expression during classes. Each student is encouraged to revel in the creative place that they are in, at the time.

If there is any subject, or technique, in particular which you wish to tackle, then please let me know and we'll tailor a lesson to suit your needs.


Looking forward to meeting you!
