What the course leads to?

The aim of this course is to broaden your understanding of drawing and equip you with the skills and confidence to make your own artwork. This course can be undertaken in isolation or as the first term of three Adult evening Art courses at the college. Next term, there will be a focus on printmaking and finally, the third term will address the human form – gesture and expression.

Work produced can contribute to a portfolio for applications to college and/or university courses. Fiona, your tutor, will be happy to discuss this further in class, should your desire.

Course content

Course Content 

Each week you will closely observe and draw a new natural form. You will use different media, technique and approach, so as to broaden your range and skill in drawing. Each workshop will make reference to artists – historical and contemporary, and you will be guided with one-to-one and group support, as well as tutor visual exemplars and demonstrations. Towards the end of the term, you will work on a more sustained outcome, with your preferred approach. Participants will be invited to exhibit online.
