A course which covers the key elements of art and encourages learners to develop these in their own personal direction. Initial sessions shall look at core subjects such as drawing, tone, colour and painting techniques, as well as looking at the work of historical and contemporary artists. Each learner will then be encouraged to develop this in a direction which will further develop their own personal interests, such as exploring traditional watercolours, developing their work into textiles pieces or 3 dimensional work. There will be a different personal project for each course.
We shall look to build on your exisiting knowledge of the key components of art, exploring new ways to approach these and looking at different techniques. In the second half of this 10 week course, you will be encouraged to develop work in your own style.
Learners should have some basic experience and understanding of art.
Learners will need some basic materials such as suitable paper, pencils, charcoals and paints. They will need further materials depending on the direction they choose to take their personal work.
Individual feedback will be given during the session, as well as group evaluations. There shall be reviews of progress at intervals throughout the course with evidence shown in sketchbooks and completed work
Extra practice at home will be encouraged, as this tends to produce a greater progression in the subject.
This course can be continued and developed to suit your own personal style or there are other courses in the arts available at PACA.
