Learn how to get the most out of your camera with a professional photographer, and experienced tutor. Suitable for absolute beginners or those who want to understand their aperture from their exposure meter! Sessions are run by local photographer and artist Sue Hamilton-White, who has an MA in Fine Art Photography. These sessions are specifically designed to instill confidence in your abilities as a photographer and will concentrate on composition, light, camera controls, technical aspects and most importantly, enjoying all that your camera has to offer.
We will take a walk around historic Crystal Palace Park in order to capture the best of what is available visually. At the end of the session you will have a greater understanding of the basic elements of a great photograph, and a renewed enthusiasm in your equipment.
Enjoy the pleasure of painting outdoors in the beautiful Crystal Palace Park. The session is led by a professional artist and teacher, who exhibits locally and has an MA in Fine Art, and is a GCSE Art examiner. Sue is also MD of Untapped, a local social enterprise. The profits from these sessions go towards art projects for vulnerable community groups including children with special educational needs, oncology patients at Bournemouth Hospital, and art workshops with older people with dementia. www.untapped.org.uk
Learn how to create your own work of art using basic techniques and developing new ones. Even if you are not confident in drawing or painting, together we can find a way for you to produce artwork you are proud of. Whether you prefer traditional or more modern styles of watercolour painting, this session will provide you with all the materials, encouragement and time you need to get going, and have a great creative experience.
Paxton Art Club is an exciting way to encourage your child (aged 5-11) to get to grips with their own creativity, and have a go at creating their heart's desire. We will concentrate on a different artform each week, and they will be able to explore new ways to unleash their imagination. We will look at a range of art movements and the artists that have shaped history, and our visual culture today.
