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
Be confident in your painting and creative work and like a challenge to see what you can do. It is not a course for a beginner as the course will build on basis art skills and encourage personal approaches to painting.
If you unsure if this is the course for you please contact the Curriculum Leader in the centre who will be able to advise you further about the course.
