This course will offer you easy ways to learn to see, in order to record the world around you. Each term has a different focus.
We will cover all the basic art principles (which apply to any subject). Learning to express yourself intuitively is of equal importance and many people already doodle, creating original works without being aware of it! Simple materials like pen, pencil and paper are all that’s needed to get started; however a few extra materials will give you more options.
Due to popular demand Term 1 will be looking at the Master’s and from this exploring your style and genre. This may be portrait, the body, landscape, or still life.
