English spoken art course
PAINTING AND COLOR TEACHING
Do you want to enjoy and develop your creative and expressive skills?
We work both with your expressive possibilities and with the understanding of color and visual language.
A desire to express or to work with color etc. is a signal that it's time to start working with art. Talent and skills are not really important for the personal outcome and its a shame to drop painting just because you believe that you have no talent. What you need is the desire to do it.
The course specifically aims at you who is studying or doing business in Riga or for other reasons lives in Latvia for longer or shorter time.
The two questions "what to paint" and "how to paint" is in the essence what painting is about. For the beginner as well as for the experienced these questions are urgent. We aim at these questions in various ways: By providing interesting, exciting and thoughtful tasks we challenge our participants creatively, technically, expressively and sensually. And we believe that the proces should make fun as well.
By a surprising task the painter will often comes up with a surprising answer. The learning about color, composition, brushwork, form etc. follows naturally during the teachings.
