Tutor Support & Technician

This course provides comprehensive tuition in the essentials of drawing and painting. Each class is intensively taught, with students gaining a thorough understanding of how to draw and paint accurately and expressively.

Students initially learn the principles of drawing through line, tone, mark-making and composition. A variety of drawing materials are used, both wet and dry, and students have the opportunity to work on longer sustained pieces, as well as fast paced, expressive drawing. Students will also learn about mixing paint and applying colour. A wide range of subject matter is studied: still life, landscape, and the figure. Each class is carefully structured with different subjects, media and processes taught so students are able to build on their learning from week to week. All materials are provided, in order that students make full use of their time in the studio. Most classes start with a short slide lecture of artists’ work connecting art of the past and present to practical studio work.
