Activity description

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: No formal entry requirements. This course is designed for all levels but some experience of drawing and painting would be useful. WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: By the end of the course students will have learned/be able to: - build up confidence exploring a variety of drawing materials; - employ line, tone and mark making more effectively to show form and perspective; - improve their sense of design and composition; - a greater appreciation of colour mixing and brushwork in water based media; and - enhance their knowledge of different approaches and methods of expression through discussion and reference to art books/examples. HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT: Course is based around drawing at start of term progressing through colour work into painting in latter weeks. Students will be encouraged to experiment, whilst developing their visual and critical faculties. Demonstrations will be given by the tutor alongside individual support and guidance. Subjects will include landscape, urban scenes and studies from nature/still life.
