Step-by-step assignments will build on and improve your knowledge of painting and further develop your visual skills.
You will begin to develop your own creative pathway while still extending your fundamental painting skills and techniques.
Assignments in this course have five main aims that will introduce the way that artists fundamentally function using paint:
THE EYE – how artists perceive the world through observations and memory (eg Monet, Renoir)
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.
At the end of the course you will have the ability to choose your own artistic direction, which can be further developed in the Artworks educational structure
