Beginning with line and tone, using a variety of drawing materials such as pencil, charcoal, graphite and ink, students will learn how to manipulate the materials, as well as being taught how to accurately record what they see.
The course also teaches students how to work in colour, both in paint and pastels. Everything from laying out a palette, through to how to mix paint and apply it to the surface is covered, and students will learn how to see colour and use it creatively. No prior knowledge is assumed and students are taken through projects step by step to build up their confidence and ability. This course is a great stepping stone to other courses at the School.
