Would you like to develop your painting skills you have not used since school or unsure of where to start but you know you want to start painting than this course is for you. The tutor will set painting projects to get the best from you using a variety of painting materials including oil and watercolour.

By the end of the course you will be able to:
Use a variety of materials to produce series of paintings
Demonstrate your observational skills through your paintings
Understand and use different brushes for your paintings
Be aware of and work to relevant Health and Safety guidelines

How will I be taught?

Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, one to one guidance, group discussions and critiques. You will look at the work of contemporary and historical artists and you will keep a sketchbook/notebook to record goals, ideas, processes and progress. You will undertake critical reflection and evaluation and be motivated to develop creative skills and enhance/develop personal skills.

What do I need to bring with me?

If you are a new student and have no materials please wait for your tutor's advice on what to buy. However, you should bring an A3 sketchbook of good quality cartridge paper, preferably with a hard cover and ring bound and and an apron. You will need to provide your own materials after the first session and these will vary in cost according to the course requirements. If you have any materials/equipment that might be appropriate please bring them with you

What can I do next?
