Course Information for Students

This course will provide an introduction for beginners and the opportunity for more advanced creativity in art and design for those wishing to improve their skills and understanding.

There are no entry requirements.

The course will cover the basics of drawing and painting, with as much development in a personal direction as can be arranged. There will be set activities designed to develop clear spatial skills, to learn about the formal elements of art and design and to set you off in an individual creative direction of your own. Mixed media and three dimensional elements may be a possibility.

You will learn on-site

Some specialist equipment may be required, depending on your individual direction.

There is no assessment, but feedback will be continual through discussion and advice.

The course should prepare you for personal creative enjoyment. A course such as this would enable you to develop a portfolio of work to present should you wish to begin the process to enter mainstream education. Other adult courses, such as the UAL Award in Drawing commencing in January 2021, may be options for you after this course.
