Course Description

Course Description
This course is designed for those who have some experience in painting and drawing and will help you to further develop your work in your chosen media or/and explore other techniques. These classes are wholly practical with demonstrations by the Tutor in relation to personal and group projects.
During the course there will always be the opportunity to do a collective project, working together looking at a particular aspect of painting, drawing and subject but generally throughout, the tutor will work with you individually or in smaller groups depending on subject and media interests.
Throughout the course it will help to keep a note book, to be used in any way you wish, which will form part of a portfolio of work including your own personal research. This is an excellent way of recording your abilities and achievements and will contribute to any plans you may have to pursue further studies in the Creative and Fine Arts.
