Painting & Drawing: Skills and Techniques (Evening Course)
Using a group of varying objects/ still life assemblages the students will be introduced to a wide variety of drawing & water-based painting techniques.
Through short, practical drawing exercises at the start of each class we then move on explore the key elements of line, texture, colour, while also exploring & using a wide variety of materials/processes.
Through structured lesson plans the students would develop skills and confidence in the areas of Drawing, Painting, Observation and Visual Research.

encouraged to experiment, develop ideas, and establish a creative approach. The use of sketchbooks is also to be highly encouraged. Through practical exercises students will explore painting as a means of recording, observing and analysis for visual development. They will explore drawing and painting techniques and processes, experimenting with a range of diverse materials. Through painting exercises students will develop hand-eye co-ordination and select/consider the appropriate use of methods and materials.
