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. You will undertake critical reflection and evaluation and be motivated to develop creative skills and enhance/develop personal skills.
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 especially for the course before it starts, but bring along to the first session anything you have already that you think will be useful.
What can I do next?
Longer or different Art courses or a further acrylics course.
What do I need to join the course
Students with all levels of experience are welcome on this course who would like to explore painting using acrylic paints, as the projects are differentiated for the individual.
It is important to note that craft courses are practical and require a degree of manual dexterity. If you need to bring a carer or another adult with you please contact the Curriculum Leader.
