How will I be taught?
Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, one to one guidance, group discussions and critiques. You will look at the work of contemporary and historical artists and you will keep a sketchbook/notebook and individual learning plan (ILP) to record goals, ideas, processes and progress.Students will need to understand the potential benefit from the programme of study, read and interpret ideas, communicate responses that are clear, logical and understandable and manage your own time. You will undertake critical reflection and evaluation and be motivated to develop creative skills and enhance/develop personal skills.
There will be individual and group feedback, and self-assessment against individualised learning outcomes stated on the ILP
What do I need to bring with me?
If you are a new student and have no materials, please wait for your tutor's advice on what to buy. You will need to provide your own materials and these will vary in cost according to the course requirements. Please do not buy anything specifically for the course before it begins, but if you have any materials/equipment that might be appropriate, please bring them with you to the first session. Complete beginners will be provided with materials for the first couple of lessons, with the exception of paper, which can be bought from the tutor. To complete the course, students will need to spend about £20 - £25 on materials; the tutor will give advice about this. Please wear an apron or old clothes, as the ink does not wash out. Please note that Chinese painting materials contain animal glue and the brushes are made from animal hair.
What can I do next?
A further Chinese Brush painting course.
