Approaches to Drawing or Painting – Figure, Landscape or Still Life
The first part of the demonstration introduces approaches, exercises, techniques and media and can be structured to society members. The artist covers the Formal Elements in relation to the subject matter chosen.
The second half of the demonstration can take the form of the production of a demonstration piece by the artist, accompanied by explanation as the work progresses. Members are encouraged to develop your own approach to subject matter and technique. Societies with more experienced artists may prefer a tutored session, with guidance for individuals producing their own pieces.
Appraisal and Advice
A discussion of members’ works, advice, suggestions for developing the pieces, in addition to praise! Reference to the Formal Elements and Principles of Art will be made.
