Experimental Painting Course with Theo Carter-Weber Cornwall


This exciting two day course gives artists of all levels the opportunity to explore new painting materials and methods with which they might transform their painting practice. Through a mixture of one to one tuition and demonstrations Tutor Theo Carter-Weber will help students to push the boundaries of their practice. This course will bring out the playful artist in you.

The course will enable students to try out all sorts of techniques which they might not have previously combined with their work. Collage, oil based resist, pen and ink, intaglio mark making, word association, dry pigment and many more exciting elements which will hugely increase the armoury of techniques used in students’ future painting practice.

All drawing materials, supports and paint will be supplied by the art school.

Please meet at Newlyn School of Art at 9.50am for a 10am start.

All skill levels, from beginners to those with more experience. If you have any specific access or support requirements please give us a call at the time of booking to discuss your needs.
