Course Description
Due to the current and evolving situation with Covid 19 the delivery methods of this course are subject to change. there may be times when the lessons will be held remotely, via online live video calls, use of our Moodle area, private social media groups etc. By signing up to the course you are agreeing to this wide range of teaching and learning approaches; the lessons will be held in classrooms where this is usually the case, when it is safe to do so, and may be switched to online as the need arises. This course is planned to start in a classroom, and with reduced group sizes to allow for distancing.

This exciting new course will introduce you to a range of creative techniques and materials. We will work with various mediums, including traditional, the unusual and recycled. Some projects may be of an abstract and experimental nature, others more traditional.

You will be encouraged to use a sketchbook to enhance your learning between sessions and further develop your learning and personal practice.
