Drawing & Painting Beginners
This course is aimed at those who are new to painting and drawing and it is designed to equip individuals with the basic drawing and painting skills that are necessary in order to develop their interest further.

During the course we will explore the basic elements of art such as line, tone, form, colour, texture and perspective through a series of creative drawing and painting tasks and through looking at the work of some well-known artists.

Teaching and learning will be based on a variety of methods and these will include tutor presentations, demonstrations and one-to-one personalised guidance. During the course, learners will be given the chance to practise new creative skills and techniques in a supportive, friendly environment.
