How will I be taught?

This course will be delivered online. Students will join the class from home and be able to exchange and in interact with other learners as they would in the classroom (speaking, listening, writing in the chat box). This measure is dictated by circumstances and the course will be delivered back in the classroom as soon as possible. Our art courses provide an opportunity for students to learn and develop, skills, techniques and to acquire an understanding of the subject. Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, instructions, one to one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques. Students will need to look at the work of other artists both contemporary and historical and keep a sketchbook/notebook to record goals, ideas, processes and progress.
To ensure that students' learning needs are met, the tutor will work with the student to complete the required Individual Learning Plan.

What do I need to bring with me?

Students need to provide their own materials and these will vary in cost according to the course requirements.
All students should bring a sketchbook of at least A4 size, preferably with a hard cover and containing good quality cartridge paper and a selection of pencils B to 4B to the first class. You will also need acrylic paints,
