About the Course
For those with a certain competence in drawing, this course gives you the opportunity to further develop your skills and gain confidence. You will be encouraged to explore the endless possibilities of transposing what you see onto paper and to expand your visual vocabulary, focusing on process as well as results.
From quick drawings using intuitive response to more sustained study, you will be challenged to broaden your use of materials as well as study the key elements of proportion, mark making, relationships of form and shape, perspective, tone and composition. Work will be from life, from 2D, studying the work of other artists and with the occasional excursion.
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. Our former 19th Century Cotswold stone brewery barrel store has been beautifully transformed into 21st century accommodation, light and well-appointed with a craftsman’s attention to detail. We offer guest accommodation for up to 43 people over two floors in 14 rooms, with a choice of single, bunk, family and double bedrooms, 12 with en-suite facilities. A ground floor disabled-friendly room is also available. The hostel provides a stylish communal dining and relaxation area, self-catering kitchen, laundry facilities and lockers for your bike. As with all our courses and workshops these are led by experienced tutors and as you will be part of a small group there is plenty of time to focus on you.
