LESSON PLANS WINTER TERM 2022 (2nd half) lesson 2. Completing last week's task or...

...There are options. Most of my students will be completing last week's exercise but for those who have finished or who finish before the end of the session I have a couple of tasks to follow including choosing an image of a single flower and cutting it in on (a rose is perfect for this particular task)....

Winter term, 2nd half 2022. Lesson 2. Loose and expressive watercolour. Finishing last week’s project and/or taking a broad strip out of the middle of a magazine image and completing the removed section with paint or cutting a single flower image in half and completing the image in paint.

· Some of you will be working on the piece of work begun last week.

· If you finish in time, take a new magazine picture and cut or tear a broad strip out of the middle.

· Stick the two remaining pieces down retaining the broad gap between them. Keep the piece you’ve torn out as you’re going to use this to complete your image with paint.

· Or, find a large picture of a single flower, cut it in half and stick one half on your page and complete the missing half with your watercolours. Keep the cut away half as this is your information – this tells you what you’re painting!

Next lesson: Pointillism! Pastels and pastel paper and either a real-life fruity still life or an image of a fruity still life from which to work. Can be fruits, vegetables and gourds. You can include a nice bowl and a plain cloth (optional).


About this site...
I am an art teacher living and working in Dorset.  I have taught for the Adult Education Service and the University of Bath, plus some supply teaching in my local schools but now I run all my classes and courses privately. This site is intended as an addition to my teaching, primarily for any student who in the week misses a class and wants to catch up.
The lessons are also available for any one anywhere who would like some ideas on what to teach, what to learn or is just interested in seeing what we do.
I'm afraid I won't be able to answer emails asking for comments on anyone's work (other than for currently enrolled students).
I teach three weekly art classes in halls in and around Blandford in Dorset and every six weeks or so I run a Sunday workshop in a village hall on the outskirts of Blandford. I also run a vibrant five-day summer school.. Other than that I spend every available moment in my studio or drawing and painting elsewhere.
I studied for four years at The Slade School of Fine Art where I was awarded The Slade Prize on graduation. I went on to travel and study further finally doing a P.G.C.E at Exeter University with Ted Wragg as my mentor. It was a wonderful year of education which set me in good stead for my years of teaching since then.
