This is a continuation course for those who attended last term, however, newcomers are welcome. We will concentrate on developing new skills and extending those already achieved. Each week we will explore a topic or skill and will extend this into a weekly home study task. Students will share their work in the group for discussion and constructive feedback.
In the course you will:
Learn and practice new skills and techniques
Challenge yourself to extend your range and 'voice'
Produce work every week and share it as part of the learning process
Keep a portfolio of work produced as a record of your progress.
