Draw and Paint: Beyond the Basics



This is a practical course aimed at those with some experience of observational painting and drawing techniques and approaches. The course focuses on traditional subject matter (figurative, still-life, landscape) at a more in-depth level, with an emphasis on extending understanding and application of established practical skills as well as experimental techniques. Learners will be encouraged to develop an individual style and 'voice' by identifying personal themes, interests and preferences for materials usage.

Students will work towards personal projects as part of a programme that will include museum/gallery visits, practice-based technical demonstrations and group discussions addressing learners' intent. Attention will be given to particular themes prevalent in art history and in contemporary work.

Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.
