About this course

This Art course is designed to expand your art knowledge and techniques, developing and consolidating skills through a range of weekly tutored sessions.
You will have the opportunity to experience a varied range of materials and styles or explore and develop a particular medium or application of your choice. There will be an emphasis on developing your own individual style and approach through tutor set briefs, workshops and personal projects, to help you develop the skills and confidence to realise your own artistic intentions.

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 craftspeople and you will keep a sketchbook/notebook and individual learning plan (ILP) to record goals, ideas, processes and progress. You will undertake critical evaluation and be motivated to develop creative skills and enhance personal skills.

What do I need to bring with me?

Any materials you already have paints, pencils and an A3 sketchbook would be a good starting point. The tutor will introduce the projects and the materials you use will be in discussed as part of the project. An apron is essential for any Art course to protect your clothes from paint.

What can I do next?

Further higher level Art courses or an Art History course to support your learning in the art room.

What do I need to join the course

It is not a course for a beginner or for those looking for a painting skills as the projects will be theme based.
