Course Overview

Local artist Graham Watson will be teaching this 15-week course, it will include 8 weeks spent on tutor-led workshops, these will help you to develop your level of skill and technical understanding.

"I have really enjoyed learning about different ways to create art. Graham's tutorials were especially helpful as he demonstrated clearly ways to use each medium."

The course will allow for the opportunity to develop skills in printmaking, drawing, collage, and painting. The course will enable you to specialise in any medium or move between and/or combine media of your choice.

"It has been really great to experiment with different art mediums that I have not used before. I also found the presentations of each workshop very beneficial. They meant that we could discuss an artwork, artist or a specific artistic technique as a group."

The course will allow for the opportunity to develop skills in:
- Printmaking
- Drawing
- Collage
- Painting

You will be given the opportunity during the course to develop outcomes responding to different project themes provided by your tutor. This will involve research, experimentation with media, revisiting techniques you have enjoyed to produce and evaluate a final piece of artwork.
