START-UP: BEGINNING TO DRAW & PAINT
It’s an exciting decision to embark on a drawing and painting course and this is never truer than in the first stages when there is a whole new world to discover.
This course is constructed to help you reconnect with the language of both drawing and painting. Aspects of observation and the processes of seeing are introduced.
You will progress at a gentle, manageable pace. We will look at line, tone, composition, perspective, colour and the mixing and application of paint. Through observation, you will be introduced to seeing the 'abstract' by way of pictorial structure, to issues of transparency, opacity, surface, depth, and space.
On completion of this course you will be able to draw and paint with greater confidence and will have practised the visual fundamentals should you wish to attend the course, Painting - L2.
Note: There's no need to bring all the materials on the list on the first evening. Please bring pencils B, 2B, 4B, 6B. We will be going through the materials list in more depth during the first class.
