Using a group of varying objects/ still life assemblages the students will be introduced to a wide variety of drawing & water-based painting techniques.

Through short, practical drawing exercises at the start of each class we then move on explore the key elements of line, texture, colour, while also exploring & using a wide variety of materials/processes.

Through structured lesson plans the students would develop skills and confidence in the areas of Drawing, Painting, Observation and Visual Research.

Students will develop their ideas through research and experimentation while also working on a personal project. Students will be encouraged to experiment, develop ideas, and establish a creative approach. The use of sketchbooks is also to be highly encouraged. Through practical exercises students will explore painting as a means of recording, observing and analysis for visual development. They will explore drawing and painting techniques and processes, experimenting with a range of diverse materials.
