This course will encourage creativity in the use of drawing and painting materials whilst working from still life, flowers, seascapes, landscapes and organic forms. Integral to this, you will gain a solid introduction and grounding in the elements of drawing: line, tone, colour, pattern, perspective and composition.
Frequent reference will be made to contemporary and historical drawings and paintings, presenting a wide range of approaches and expression. Each session is carefully structured and timed to enable learners to reflect and respond in more personal ways to their own projects as well as group assignments. Participants will leave the course with some great drawings and paintings as well as improved knowledge, skill and understanding.
