All About Art

In this series of pre-recorded online classes, Ashcroft Arts Centres Julie will be exploring six different styles of art.

Each week will be an introduction to a new style and Julie will give an insight into the art, as well as key techniques in how to approach the style. These six classes will be presented in a relaxed and engaging approach, so you can enjoy different styles of art at home.

The six styles Julie will be teaching are…

  • Session 1: Exploring colour
  • Session 2: Portraiture
  • Session 3: Still life
  • Session 4: Landscape
  • Session 5: Impressionism
  • Session 6: The figure

In the first session we will be looking at some basic colour theory - primary colours, secondary colours, complimentary colours and watercolour techniques. Each session will also include some history around the art subject as well as demonstrations.

You will be able to re-watch and access these videos as many times as you like until the end of July.

What you need: Before each class participants will be informed about the type of art Julie will be introducing and about any materials that would be useful for the class. If you have none of the suggested materials, you can use any paints and paper you have at home.

For the first week, suggested materials are watercolour paint, a pot of water, various soft brushes, watercolour paper and newspaper/something to cover the surface you will be working on.

Tutor: Julie Tucker

Julie is a freelance artist and tutor living in Fareham-Hampshire. She has a background in community Arts and has worked with all age groups on many projects. Her passion is Fine Art, particularly oil paint on canvas and she simply adores the genre Impressionism!

She teaches various art classes at Ashcroft Arts Centre in Fareham (we started with one class and now have six full classes). Julie truly believes that art as a medium is incredibly therapeutic and should always be fun and relaxed - it is about empowering individuals to paint and be creative freely without judgement form others.

“To truly paint is to find oneself amidst the chaos of the world we live in” Julie Tucker.
