This course will be delivered online for now and will resume in the Golf Road Centre Deal as soon as possible.
On this watercolour course you will have the opportunity to continue to learn, apply and extend the skills and techniques learned on a Beginners course. The Improvers course covers line and wash painting and drawing, mixed media techniques including drawing and painting, illustration and graphic skills. Elements of composition, proportion and tonal and colour work are explored through projects in still life, landscape and the human form.
To ensure that students' learning needs are met, the tutor will work with the student to complete the required Individual Learning Plan.
As a starting point, all Creative subjects will have the following Course Outcomes
- Successfully demonstrate techniques/skills.
- Select the appropriate media, materials and processes to complete a project.
- Identify work of others to inspire your own work.
- Demonstrate an understanding of relevant Health and Safety issues.
These outcomes will be the basis of all learning. Additional Personal Learning Outcomes can be negotiated with your tutor to better meet your individual needs.
