The energy and freshness of initial exploratory drawings can be hard to maintain when moving into paint.
This short course is planned as an introduction to the long 20 week course beginning in September which aims to enable you to find ‘ways in’ to achieving an equivalent quality in your painting. The course is open to anyone whether they plan to follow on or not.
The course provides five structured sessions in which you will use a variety of drawing and painting media and work on studies, exercises and activities useful for both representative and more abstracted contemporary painting. These will include drawing from observation and composition and colour work.
You will begin to assess your own work and that of your peers through 1:1 discussion with the tutor and group critique. Learners are encouraged to share ideas and experiences throughout the course.
• Entry level - The course is for people with experience of drawing and painting who are up for a challege!
• You are expected to bring your own basic materials. Painting demonstrations will be in acrylics. During the term you’ll need drawing tools and media (inks, pencils, rubbers, charcoal, etc), paints, brushes, palettes, water containers etc, and drawing and painting paper board. You do not need to buy everything before the course starts. The tutor holds some items to supplement your basic materials as the course is short. We will discuss materials at the first session.
• For the first session you will need large drawing paper, masking tape, both willow and compressed charcoal, a rubber, kitchen towel and a table covering.
Abingdon and Witney College is subject to Ofsted regulation and is required to work with all its students to make sure they understand Government initiatives around Safeguarding, Prevent and Fundamental British Values. Information on these matters will be shared with you during your course.
You will also be asked to complete monitoring paperwork, which helps us to deliver course content to the highest quality.
