The course is practical and offers you the opportunity to explore exhibits and draw from observation in the museum. You will have the opportunity to develop observational drawing skills and techniques according to your individual needs.

You will also have the opportunity to work with an experienced tutor to develop new skills and experiment in observational drawing.

• explore the relativity of shape and form through line
• encompass tone, colour and composition
• explore differing styles, images and objects
• take part in group discussions and appraise own and peers’ work
• use dry media to create a series of drawings

You will need to bring to the course:
• hard back sketched book (stitched spine is preferred as this will allow you to work across both pages, with a hard back to lean on) A3 size A4 minimum
• pencils of differing grades (eg. HB, 2B, 4B )
• eraser
• pencil sharpener and small bag for shavings

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.

This course may lead to further exploring drawing and painting courses with Oxfordshire Adult Learning. You can also continue to develop your own practice using our free museums.
There are no entry requirements

Courses can fill fast, so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. Decisions on whether a course is to run are made two weeks prior to the start date - an email will be sent to you should there be changes to your course or if it is cancelled. Please check your inbox leading up to your course, including the junk folders. For anyone without an email account, our Admissions team will phone you instead.

For the first week of the course you will need to bring a valid form of identification; this includes passport, driving licence, debit/credit card, Birth Certificate or National Insurance card.

Please note - you should be 19 years old or over at 31st August 2019 prior to starting the course.
Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £100 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The 19+ full fee button displays the full fee that may apply. As the rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can also visit the Course Fees & Finance page under 'Info Centre' at the top of the page.
