Learning Area: 

This is an introduction to building confidence and skill with painting. To start with we will look at how other artist work and develop our own ideas from this. So you need to start looking at artists you like and collect images of their work. This course has a big emphasis on how to develop and strengthen your drawing skills. You will also experiment with a variety of ways to use paint and other associated media to build relief surfaces. You are encouraged to develop good studio practices, working with and along side others, managing materials and your time in a fun and positive way. You will keep a workbook and make finished art works that maybe displayed with your permission. We may visit art exhibitions, this will be negotiated during the course. There will be homework of 1-1.5 hours a week
Drawing = observational/recording - pencils, charcoal & doodling - colour pencils, makers and more, Painting = water colours, acrylic, oils
