Available spots


Course will run weekly in term time, on Thursdays 10am - 3pm Starting September 26th September Participants have the choice to be put in for formal assessment with City & Guilds, at the end of the course. It is not compulsory! Suitable for beginners, those who are 'dabbling' and those already drawing who would like to explore a variety of drawing techniques and learn about drawing in a historical and contemporary context in order to enhance their practice. This fantastic course covers the vital elements of drawing, including colour, line, shape, form, value, texture, space, and guides the learner through the processes of experimentation and planning, to produce and display finished art works, in our annual art exhibition. Students will explore the use of a sketchbook to record and evaluate their experimentation. We will provide a wide range of art materials, including pencils, charcoal, ink, chalk/pastels, paint, textural mediums, wax crayons, and multiple types of paper. Tasks will include producing drawings showing water, still or moving, horticultural and architectural features. With technical workshops coupled with theory lectures, regular tutorials and studio discussion, learners are encouraged to engage in the research of historical and contemporary practice to help inform and develop their own creativity. At South West Art Courses, we keep group size small at a maximum of 8 learners. This ensures a high degree of teacher contact time while enabling enough participants for engaging group discussion. . Deposit 25% required at the time of booking with the balance due before enrolment in September. Payment plans available. Please email for details. South West Art Courses Ltd.
