This course is suitable for all levels. We believe that everyone can draw. Whether you're just starting out or have done a little drawing and want a reminder of the basics. We will help you develop your skills and potential. You will get the chance to express your creativity, experiment with different mediums and develop your drawing techniques in a fun and supportive environment.
There will be temporary changes to the teaching of this course due to Covid 19
Your safety is our priority, and in these unprecedented times we need to make some temporary changes until it is safe to welcome you all into class.
So, to begin with, your classes will be taught with a mix of online teaching and some 1:1 tutorial or small group work in a safe, socially distanced environment. Some cases courses may be taught fully online if that works best.
However, nobody needs to come into class until they feel happy to do so, all the materials you need to succeed will be online, and if you choose to stay home, we will make sure you will receive all the support you need via email, phone and through our Virtual Learning Environment.
The course involves drawing from direct observation, still life, landscapes, self portrait and photographs with an emphasis on space, volume, simple perspective and other techniques and concepts.
Seeing/Drawing skills will be developed and mark making, value, line and line quality will be explored.
