dennis parker summer 2021 art classes

 

Harrow Arts Centre, 171 Uxbridge Road, Hatch End, Middx HA5 4EA

9.30 – 11.30 am                  5 weekly classes                     £65

 

  • For all levels from beginners to advanced

  • For those painting for pleasure as well as those working towards GCSE, A-level or degree

  • A choice of working in any media including drawing, painting (watercolour, pastel, acrylic, oil, mixed media, print making etc)

  • A chance to have fun exploring all styles of interpretation from realism to abstraction, with demonstrations in all techniques

  • Opportunity to develop and gain guidance on your portfolio for art college, degree and postgraduate courses. 

For all classes, themes are suggested – not obligatory – so if you have other concepts you would prefer to explore you can do so instead, with Dennis’s help and guidance whilst navigating the creative process. 

Having explored essential techniques and styles students are encouraged to create original work from their own references, such as observational drawings and photographs, rather than images from magazines or the internet.

dennis parker shaping air - photoshoots with photographic model / ballerina

 

Within a small group, a unique opportunity to have a private photoshoot with an experienced photographic model/ballerina with the added dimension of professional photographic lighting. Artists wishing to explore the aesthetic of classical life poses, the fluidity of dance/movement and more unusual physically demanding short term photographic poses will be guided through the alchemy of photo composition using light, angle and shadow. Studio lighting, in tandem with filters and reflectors, enables us to explore ‘in-camera:’ framing a shot, perspective, subtleties and nuances of colour playing on the human form, plus the impact of angle and degree of light and shadow (chiaroscuro). Essential knowledge of your own camera, whether it is compact, bridge or DSLR, includes how to access: shutter priority, aperture priority, ISO and exposure compensation, to maximise the potential of the shoot. Price on application.
