Art is a great way to relax, unwind and develop your creative skills while meeting and engaging with likeminded people. Each week you will explore a simple and fun art activity and over the duration of the course, create a portfolio of work that demonstrates your learning experiences. You will then be able to use art to continue your personal creative wellbeing journey.
- Describe and demonstrate mark making techniques used in drawing
- Identify the best methods to create tone in charcoal

- Use a variety of art materials to produce at least one piece of work per week
