Paint along with Bridget (acrylics)
Let Bridget guide you through a couple hours of painting in a step-by-step format. This is for those of you who would like to know more about painting.

You will learn about mixing, brush techniques, layering, glazing, scumbling and paint application; and while you're learning, probably knock out a couple of masterpieces too!

It is essential that you refer to the sections “What do I need to bring” and “Is there anything else I need to know”.

You will need to bring and have prepared for class:

Synthetic paint brushes (3/4 inch flat, ½ inch flat, approx. size 5 round, approx. size 0 round and a size 0 rigger (very long bristle).
A palette or a flat area to mix paint onto (could be an old large margarine tub lid or a place mat).
A large water tub (sort of size of 200g coffee jar).
A rag to wipe your brush on.
Protection for your table (work area).
An easel (if you have one).
Acrylic paint set (at least size 75ml each). You may be able to buy sets from places like the Range or Hobbycraft in York. Colours: titanium white, a black (or panes grey), a blue (perhaps cobalt), a yellow (like a mid-tone), a brown (maybe raw or burnt umber), a red (like brilliant or maybe alizarin crimson), and a green (like a sap green). Any other colours are welcome too e.g. yellow ochre, ultra-marine blue etc, if you have them.
Something to paint on, a canvas or canvas board (x4) (size: larger than A4, don’t go any larger than A2 as the larger the area the faster you will have to work and the more paint you will need). You may wish to use acrylic paper and buy a pad, if so, you will need to tape your paper onto a piece of board.

You will be sent the reference photo via email and it is up to you to have it ready to use for each session. You will need to have the image drawn out before the class.

This is a paint along class so it is essential that you are prepared and ready to paint before the session begins. Please have your work station ready… your paints squeezed out on your palette, water in your tub, everything to hand.

This is an online course that will be delivered via Zoom, so please ensure that you can access this on the device you are using.

You will receive your Zoom login details in an email that is sent out 24 hours before the course is due to start. (Please note, if you enrol less than 24 hours before a course starts, you will receive your zoom code as soon as you enrol.) Please keep your Zoom code safe as you will need the same code for further classes if this is part of a course.

You will need to join Zoom five minutes before your session is due to start and remain in the “waiting room”. Your tutor will then admit you to the class once your session is ready to begin.

If you require help to download or use Zoom, please email ictskills@york.gov.uk at least a week before your course starts and we will endeavour to provide assistance.

Please ensure that you read and understand the H&S guidelines on any new creative product you intend to use during the course, before the first class.
