The course cycles through different units over one year. At any time a student may decide to move into the Intermediate to Advanced group.
Acrylic is the main painting medium taught in this course. Other media introduced throughout the year will include charcoal, graphite and watercolour.
The 12 month course is structured so that basics are covered. It is our intention that these basics will then become the building blocks for further extension.
The course is carefully structured with a balance of direction, guidance and flexibility.
The emphasis is hands-on. To facilitate this, there will be demonstrations, discussions and viewing of relevant selected artworks.
We aim to introduce you to the basics of painting and drawing in a supportive and flexible environment. Flexibility is important. Every class, and every student, is unique. Where necessary and applicable, the course will be adapted and tailored to the on-going interests and developing expertise of the class and the individual members of the group.
