START-UP: BEGINNING TO DRAW & PAINT
“And suddenly you know: It's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings”. Meister Eckhart
In this relaxed and informative introductory course, students will be encouraged in the fundamental steps necessary to develop an essential set of drawing and painting skills, with an emphasis on exploration, processes, as well as materials.
We will look at the visual building blocks of line, tone, composition, space, perspective, and colour. There will be progressive developments in these skills and an introduction to the idea of learning to really see by way of practical, observational exercises, so you gain confidence in your artmaking.
Note: Bring your drawing materials to the first session.
