The Experience

Choose from one, four-hour online class; or opt for four, two and a half hour classes as part of a longer, online course. 

Either by email, phone, or via zoom; you and your tutor will discuss your previous history with art in general, what type of art you prefer, and what you would like to achieve throughout the course. The primary aim of the consultation is to tailor your course to your specific level of ability and what you would like to learn based on your own desires and needs.  In this way, each painting course is a unique experience designed exclusively for you in collaboration with you. 

Depending on your own preferences the course will either be offered for acrylic paint or oil paint; in reference to your choice of favourite styles and choice of subject matter, the course will focus on helping you to create your own reproduction of a famous work of art, or help you to create your own original composition in a recognisable style. Beyond the tailored focus of what you will paint, you will learn the foundational basics of how to use either oil or acrylic paint. By the end of this course you will have gained enough information and received enough guided instruction to be able to continue experimenting with painting on your own.  

From the consultation your tutor will sketch out a plan for your course, discuss what materials you will need and where to obtain them, and arrange the scheduling of your class sessions with you.  

Allow us to introduce you to... Lascelles Fine Art

Lascelles Fine Arts is owned and operated by Gordon Carter. Gordon is a British-American artist with 32 years experience as an oil painter and has been a professional artist for 23 years. He has had numerous personal exhibitions and group showings in North America and Europe, notably also participating in group exhibitions in several national museums in Europe and the Venice Biennial.

His works have been received into public and private collections in Europe and North America. He began teaching drawing and painting as an extension of his art practice in 2006. Lascelles Fine Art institution was created as a result of the global pandemic, as Gordon sought new ways to showcase and teach art.

Why we love Lascelles Fine Art

Lascelles Fine Art believe art should not be exclusive, rather it is a skill that anyone, at any age, may acquire. All that is required is knowledge, encouragement and continued practice; two of which Lascelles can provide. If you have the drive to push on and learn the core skills required in art, this experience may be the one for you. 

From this experience, Lascelles have found that the benefits to health and wellbeing come from the practice of drawing rather than a final, finished result; in this way the beginning student will have benefit from the practice even before they have developed their drawing skill to any proficient level.  

Basically, it's not all about the end result. This is a chance to learn the processes and the skills that make a great artist from a veteran of the practice.
