About

This course is designed to explore the basics of drawing, printmaking and acrylic painting.  You will paint with acrylics exploring brushstrokes and the palette knife using landscape, still-life and portrait as subject matter.

You will create a portfolio of work that includes drawing, monoprinting and/or painting with acrylics, accompanied by written reflective commentary.

For drawing you will require a 2B pencil, eraser and pencil sharpener plus drawing paper. Materials will be supplied for monoprinting. You will need the drawing materials for the first class. Your tutor will discuss the painting kit required before you purchase painting materials.
