This course is for students who have some experience but wish to develop their artistic skills and build confidence using a range of drawing and painting media. These will include; charcoal, pencil, oil and soft pastels, watercolour, acrylic and oils.
We will explore a range of subject matter and experiment with different styles to extend your creative ability. From detailed observational drawing to wild expressive oil painting techniques.
There will be plenty of opportunities for you to develop your own ideas and pursue your own interests so please do collect and bring along any sources of inspiration. Photographs, artist postcards, imagery from magazines, books etc. as we will not be solely working from life/observation.
This will be a fun course, in a non- intimidating environment with a friendly tutor who will provide individual support and guidance.
You can turn any of our courses into a short break by staying in our on site accommodation. When you book a residential package you will get discounted accommodation in our stylish boutique hostel located in the centre of Cirencester in the Cotswolds right next door to New Brewery Arts.
