The course aims to provide a enjoyable opportunity for developing drawing and painting skills and creativity, within a supportive group in a friendly environment. The course is designed for those with some experience, but welcomes newcomers and those with more experience who are looking for a challenge. The course aims to create a confident approach to exploring the themes and creating images from fauna and flora in a personal way.
The teaching is tailored to each individual within the group, finding a way in which you like to learn. Everyone is free to work on their own ideas and follow their own interests by bringing along something to draw or paint. Lesson plans are available for a more structured learning experience. The primary aim is for the learning to be enjoyable and fun by experimenting with tools and exploring media in a variety of ways. Students are welcome to join the course during the year if there are spaces available.
