The mind – a formal, analytical approach to painting that gives an impression of our thoughts and ideas (eg Cezanne, Seurat).

The heart – an emotive, intuitive and expressive approach to drawing and painting that allows artists to instinctively express feelings through observations and imagination (eg Van Gogh, Munch).

Techniques skills and theories – expanding on the traditional skills, techniques, theories and experimental approaches to painting and drawing using a variety of materials.

Context – placing all aspects of this programme into historical and contemporary art context.
