Creative Painting & Drawing – Thursday
Creative Painting & Drawing - Thursday
If you would like to explore your creative side’ this course is for you
No experience is necessary; just a love of visual arts and a willingness to experiment with new materials and ideas and learn new techniques.
Each term could have a theme, for example ‘Mind and Body’, ’Nature’, ‘Landscape’, and will cover a range of drawing and painting techniques in different media, with underpinning technical tips to develop and expand your artistic skills.
Throughout the course we will look at other artists’ work to see how they were done and to inspire and refresh our own.
