Art Development Course
My philosophy is to follow the student.
We begin by discussing what interests each individual student may have. We then talk about what we will need to research to begin the process of creating. Drawing is usually the point of all beginnings but doesn't have to be. The student can then branch out into other disciplines such as painting, mixed media or sculpture depending on which mediums they would like to explore or what their subject dictates.
Your tutor will demonstrate the techniques you will need to employ throughout your chosen project.
We focus on -
Drawing - Traditional and contemporary drawing exercises, character development, cartoons, children's book Illustration, perspective drawing, portraiture, landscapes, still-life, abstract...
Painting - Acrylic/Oils/ Watercolour and mixed media
Sculpture - Clay, Polymer Clay and Mixed media...
Research - Your subject by using a visual diary to record sketches, thoughts and ideas, take and collect photos, print and collect online images and info, do observational drawings, do onsite observations, colour tests, etc,...
This course is also ideal for college-age students who need help with their Art-boards and to create and accumulate work for University Portfolios. (Casual classes are available at a slightly higher rate, see below).
