Overview of course

This course is ideal for beginners, struggling starters and anyone trying, but failing to draw and paint for pleasure. It runs for a further two terms next year giving you the chance to develop and explore more types of painting and mediums.

What will I learn?

This course is designed to help you draw and paint pictures you can be pleased with and want to go on and do more. Through clear demonstrations and one to one guidance the tutor will inspire and encourage students of all levels to explore new subjects and produce fresh original art, while having fun doing it.

 

Come and learn how to get the most from your potential and this relaxing pastime. The mediums used will be mainly pencil, pen, charcoal and watercolour although acrylic will be available to those that want the extra challenge.  The tutor encourages you to have a go at these different materials so you can find out what suits you best.

Who is the course for?

Absolutely anyone, what ever age, or skill level who would like to add drawing and painting to their list of hobbies and leisure activities.

Will I have to provide anything?

You will need the following: 2B pencil, rubber, small to medium pad of cartridge paper and also watercolour paper pad (but beware of very cheap pads).  Small set of watercolours (half pans preferred but tubes OK.) One large round brush (size 10 or 12) and one small brush (size 5 or 6) and a 3/4 " flat brush. The Daler - Rowney @Graduate' range is recommended as best value for money. A black drawing pen and a few sticks of medium thickness charcoal. (Await confirmation of course before purchasing materials).

 

Access to the main college car park is via Beeton's Way (IP33 3TT). At your first session please go to Main Reception in The Gateway where you will be met by the tutor or directed to your classroom.
