Activity description

This course aims to help students represent an image of the figure as a whole within a setting. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: None - for all levels of ability. WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO LEARN: By the end of the course, students will have learned: - good composition; - direction of line and colour; - to nurture individual style; and - about the role of the figure in art. GENERAL APPROACH TO COURSE: Individual tuition is given by the tutor during the class. Art reference material presented may be discussed with tutor. MATERIALS REQUIRED BY STUDENT: Pencils (HB up to 2B); rubber; charcoal; chalk; pastels including white and greys; water based paints; brushes; flat type large and medium paper. PLEASE NOTE: The viability of a course is dependent on a sufficient number of enrolled students. Students are advised to wait until the first session of the class before purchasing any expensive items of equipment/materials. Tutors may be able to give advice about what and where to buy however it would be useful to bring basic materials with you to the first class. Please note that while we endeavour to have a model for most sessions of this course, it is not always possible to do so.
