Are you a natural artist, fascinated by art processes and mediums? Investigate and develop a broad range of skills and techniques that will enable you to work with a variety of materials with confidence and creativity. You'll explore pencil, ink, paint (acrylic, water colour and oil) along with print making. You'll develop a range of drawing and painting techniques, such as creating composition, perspective, colour theory, anatomy and working from life, whilst examining tone, texture, shape and form, skills which will support your development as an artist. Discover an appreciation of different ways of working, from constructing, assembling and understanding pictorial space, scale and structure, to developing your knowledge of different approaches. Themes such as natural form, the environment and manmade structure will be used to create a selection of work for your sketchbook and portfolio.
