This course provides a structured introduction to drawing and painting and is designed for complete beginners wishing to learn the basics.
Beginning with line and tone, using a variety of drawing materials such as pencil, charcoal, graphite and ink, students learn how to manipulate the medium, as well as being taught how to accurately record what they see. The course also teaches students how to work in colour, using a variety of drawing materials and paint. Every step is covered; laying out a palette, how to mix paint and apply it to the surface, and 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 entry point for beginner level students and a stepping stone to other courses at the School.
