Course Summary

This course introduces the student to a range of drawing and painting techniques in portraiture and the full figure. The course begins with the essential practice of drawing and gradually leads to painting in acrylic or oil. Using a variety of mediums, students explore drawing and painting techniques with a life model as the subject. This course deals with improving visual concentration and students observe, perceive and express the visual characteristics of the subject. The course explores a wide range of experimental life drawing and painting processes as a means of creative investigation along with observation skills and form, line, tone, texture and composition. Students will be encouraged to explore a personal visual language through their chosen medium.
