Service Description

This is a fun class that offers the opportunity to paint in and around Scarborough town. NYAS is just a short stroll from the Esplanade which is situated up on South Cliff with its fantastic views of the North Sea. Working with quick sketches in oil or acrylic, students will practice how to efficiently and accurately capture tone and colour outside. Creating loose and vigorous paintings, we will look at how to capture a sense of light and atmosphere. Looking at the works of other artists we will discuss different ways of composing a painting in an urban setting. Painting outside of the studio is always an exciting experience and students of all levels are sure to enjoy the challenge. Meet at NYAS on South Street at 10am prompt or perhaps a little bit before. It's just a short walk to where we're setting up. Help will be on hand for the set up. Please bring: Art materials - acrylic paints or oil paints, pencils, brushes, canvases (we also sell canvases). We will be out in the open so please bring sun cream for your protection. You should bring water and a snack. We provide: Easels, paint palettes, tables, chairs, white spirit and we sell canvas/ canvas board.
