A thorough introduction to the fundamentals of drawing and painting, this course is specifically aimed at those with no prior experience.
Initially working from simple, still life set-ups, students will be introduced to ways of drawing using line, tone, proportion, form and composition. The week will culminate with us learning the essentials of painting and working with colour. Tutor-led demonstrations will help students gain confidence working with a variety of materials. We will explore learning to draw what we see, as well as how to approach mark-making and image building. This course works well as a ‘primer’ before undertaking other Summer School courses.
