Working from man-made objects, natural forms and figure drawings this course will introduce you to basic drawing and painting skills. Exploring expressive approaches to mark making will encourage you to relax and discover new artistic techniques. The basic grammar of drawing, how to portray 3D objects convincingly in 2D, the different types of paints and basic colour theory / colour mixing, will all be covered. By the end of the course you will have learnt good, basic art practice, ready for further study on the Portfolio Preparation Course (due to start Sept 2020) or to continue with your own art practice.
