Essential Skills in Painting and Drawing

Essential Skills in Painting and Drawing

A sound knowledge of drawing is acquired, the mixing of colour and handling of paint are taught through painting from observation and imagination. Sketchbooks are essential to explore enthusiasms, interests and research and develop ideas experimenting with traditional and contemporary media and processes. Imaginative and self-motivated work is encouraged in order to build a portfolio of coursework. Each student is encouraged to be independent and confidently creative. Context and inspiration are provided through the parallel study of the history of art if wished. Examination fees may apply
