Course description

Drawing & Painting - Oil & Acrylic Painting

Drawing & Painting - Oil & Acrylic Painting [FDF1010G]: Overview

The aim of this course is to help you develop personal expression when using oils and/or acrylic paints; this will be done through a mixture of practice, discussion and demonstration techniques.

What will we cover?

The course will establish a range of basic methods in Oil and Acrylic Painting through the use of sketchbook, photographs, found images or direct observation. You will learn to distinguish the use of tone, colour, composition and texture; gain confidence in using painting materials and be encouraged to take part in group discussions. Learners will have access to one to one support.

Who is this course for? Is there anything I need to know before joining?

Those with some experience of painting would be helpful but not essential. This course is useful for those who need a refresher as well as those who are just starting out.

As our courses are taught in English, please contact us if you have any concerns about your level of English.

What do I need to bring to the first class? Will there be any extra costs?
