Painting & Drawing - Art Improvers
This course is designed for learners who are already painting and drawing at home and want to develop their work with the support of a tutor and other learners.

Each week you will have the opportunity to share what you’ve been working on as well as look at artworks that will inspire and generate new ideas. Your tutor will lead you in practical exercises too, demonstrating techniques and methods which you can join in with at home.

You can work in watercolour, acrylic or oils during the course depending on what you have at home. Each class will combine discussion and practical work and will be supported by an online tutor-curated resource page, and a gallery where you can share your work.

This course is suitable for learners who have some experience in drawing and painting but want to really develop their skills. It might be that you have a focus, such as landscape or portraiture, or you want to look at a range of approaches and develop a wider range of skills. You will be encouraged to experiment and try new approaches. Prosp User 4
