Previous Knowledge or Experience: No experience necessary, just bags of enthusiasm, embrace happy mistakes and the “trial & error” technique. The tutor will prepare different exercises during the course, you will receive a photograph to work from and usually an example of other artist’s work for reference that has some connection with the activity proposed, each exercise is normally 2 sessions long although this can vary.

During the course learners can also propose a different technique or subject to the ones proposed by the tutor.

How will I learn: observation and demonstration

How will I be assessed: The tutor will send you a few questions to get an idea of your experience with the different techniques proposed for the course before it starts.

A WhatsApp group will be created for this course to enable exchange of images during the sessions. You are more than welcome to use this chat to get feedback during and between sessions.

During the sessions the tutor will give feedback and share everyone’s work, this will enable you to see how other people has used the same technique and subject as you but in a completely different way which is important!

You will receive continuous constructive criticism and advise during the course regarding your work, materials, and artists for reference.
