Unleash Your Inner Artist with Bellespetite, 14th June

In June we held a joint Unleash Your Inner Artist art class with one of the artists we work with, Bellespetite.

It was an artist talk and art class combined. Bellespetite showcased emulsion transfer technique and charcoal and chalk drawing. We drew inspiration from fresh garlic and mushroom, their shapes, shadows and highlights. As you can imagine we scared away all vampires with the smell, but it was really worth it ūüôā As always, the observation is the most important part of these classes. All participants received also a signed limited edition digital print by the artist.

If you are interested in participating in the art class, then the next class is on Monday, 19th August 2019 and you can book on here.

Here are some photos of the art class:

Unleash Your Inner Artist / 15.04.2019

In our April art class, we focused on a variety of surfaces. Participants drew a kettle and an iron, which offered both, shiny and reflective surfaces as well as matte and non-reflective ones. It wasn’t the easiest task, especially because of different dark tones, however, all participants managed to complete the composition. As with every class, we emphasize on measuring skills to achieve correct proportions of the items.

The next class is on Monday, 20th May at 5.30pm at the Lost & Found in Birmingham. Book your place here.

Unleash Your Inner Artist / 18.02.2019

This February we had another successful art class with great attendance. We had a similar composition as last month and were focusing on how to measure different elements of the composition (and understanding the relation to one another) and how to shade and create an illusion of three-dimensional objects.

The aim of the class is to offer easy to follow steps which participants can take on board and follow at home. Each class is different as we welcome new participants as well as our regular students.

Unleash Your Inner Artist takes place every third Monday of the month at the Lost & Found in Birmingham. The next class will take place on Monday, 18th March 2019 at 5.30pm until 7.30pm.

Unleash Your Inner Artist / 21.01.2019

The first art class of this year took place on the 21st of January. The assignment was to draw a composition of various shapes and colour contrasts. The participants learned how to measure different elements of the composition and how do they relate to each other. The second learning point was about shading and distinguishing which colour is darker and which lighter. And finally, how to show the objects are three-dimensional and have different shapes (cube, sphere, cylinder).

The aim of the class is to offer easy to follow steps which participants can take on board and follow at home. Each class is different as we welcome new participants as well as our regular students.

Previously we had various still-life exercises like drawing a lamp, wine bottle and glass and skull. In November, we focused on proportions how to copy an image from a photo. In December, we went back to the traditional still-life drawing. We use pencil and markers, however, we also have introduced vinyl cuts and creating collages.
