This course is open to participants who have some life drawing experience, although painting experience isn’t required.

Course projects give students an opportunity to deepen their understanding of drawing through regular study of a life model. Participants will work from easels with a life model present for all sessions.

Working mainly in watercolour, you will gain confidence in handling paint and develop a practical understanding of colour theory. A variety of methods will be covered, ranging from gestural and experimental to a more analytical and considered approach.
