From Caravaggio to Vermeer and Toulouse-Lautrec, many painters have used tonal contrast to build depth and volume. Get to grips with this dramatic technique and recreate a detail from a work by an old master on canvas. Learn to prepare the canvas, create preliminary sketches, transfer the drawing to canvas, and build volume and colour through layers of paint. For speed of drying, acrylic paint will be used. Some drawing and painting experience is required.

Basic materials provided, although we recommend bringing your own paintbrushes.

There will be a half term break on 29 Oct, with classes resuming on 5 November.
