This course is designed to introduce students to the versatility of drawing and painting with a focus on visual communication, art as play and creative experimentation. This course is more technique driven and encourages students to push themselves.

Drawing with soft/chalk pastels

In response to the climate change crisis, students will choose from a selection of endangered Arctic/Antarctic animals to create a moody drawing.


Painting with acrylics

Using masking tape, students will use negative space to create a winter wonderland painting. Students can challenge themselves by adding buildings, people or animals into their scenery to create further



Drawing with oil pastels

Create your own nymph, fairy or spirit character to adorn with the trinkets of springtime. Students will learn about portraiture drawing, including proportion, caricature and exaggeration.


Painting with ink

Inspired by Chinese ink painting, students will create either a vase, bouquet or wildflower scene.


Drawing with graphite

Insects and arthropods are the theme for this week. Students will look at macro

photography and hyperrealism in fine art to create drawings with minute detail.


Painting with acrylics

Create a painting of a tropical island horizon scene focusing on silhouette and light.


Drawing with ink/markers

Inspired by comic artists, graphic novelists and mangaka, students will pencil and ink their own action filled drawing. Skills learnt in this class are an extension of week 3, this time looking more into full body



Painting with ink/water colours

Create either a landscape or a portrait using layers of soft washes and bold shapes, then lined in intense white or black ink.


Students will plan and complete their own project or use this time to expand on an art technique

introduced in previous weeks.
