About

Develop art skills through learning and experimenting in a positive class environment. You will learn a variety of basic art skills to lead into producing final artworks. Along with guest tutors, you will develop skills in colour theory, perspective/composition, drawing, stencil, black book lettering, painting, image abstraction, animation, materials/processes and photography.

Through the course, students will be encouraged to communicate their ideas and messages through the development of visual language skills and techniques

Students’ final artworks based on their chosen themes will be reproduced, shared and connected back into the local community as a collective public project.

Class will be split into an hour of teaching followed by an hour of free time. Students will also be provided with a take home visual diary to encourage the development of their art and ideas outside of class.
