This course is for all levels of ability, from complete beginners upwards – it is not formally
structured and is focused on enjoyment whilst learning. Students will be shown and encouraged
individually to draw and paint what they personally wish to depict.
Various techniques and media will be explored and demonstrations of usage of materials will be
ongoing throughout the course. During the course exercises for the whole group will be undertaken from time to time. However, students will work mainly on their own projects.
Lead pencil, charcoal, watercolour, acrylic, pastels and coloured pencils will be the main methods of drawing and painting in this class.
Advice will be given on equipment at the start of the course. Some materials are available to
borrow until students have been able to purchase their own.
