Who is the course for: Individuals looking to develop their creative skills and improve their wellbeing
Previous knowledge/experience required: None required except lots of enthusiasm, willingness to learn and a desire to have fun. This is a very loose style of drawing and so very suitable for beginners.
How will I learn: This is a relaxing and friendly course with step by step demonstrations. You will be gently guided through different drawing activities. You will be encouraged to ignore any past thoughts (I can't draw) not to worry about the future (what will it look like) but to concentrate on the moment in time. Each week will focus on specific elements used within art with a different subject.
How will I be assessed: Through observation, questioning, discussion and peer/self-evaluation.
You will need a variety of drawing materials, some suggestions below:
- An A5 or A4 sketchbook or loose paper
- Pencils within the H to 8B range
- Coloured pencils
- Felt tips or similar like gel pens or paint pens
- Black biro or black felt tip, or black fine line drawing pen or black sharpie pen
- Coloured paper or old magazines for collage and Scissors and Pritt stick glue
