A place to meet and draw for pleasure
In both the watercolour and 'Just Drawing' classes each half term will be divided into different activities using a variety of subjects as a starting point. Each activity will introduce a different method or approach which will help to build student knowledge.
'Just Drawing' Lessons
These classes introduce students to a range of different media and drawing styles on a week to week basis.
Students develop the techniques covered, to create a finished drawing. This will be the result of investigating 1 or 2 themes over each half term period.
This aims to develop confidence and build student knowledge.
Classes are teacher led with demonstrations on how to approach each task. Each 6 week period is adapted in line with the needs of the class and therefore is not rigidly structured to pre-set tasks.
Watercolour Lessons this half term
As a general rule students plan and create drawings in week 1 of each two week activity. In week 2 students develop their work through the use of colour or tone*
