Join our fabulous artist and arts tutor Christina Frank as she guides you through a wonderful creative program. During the term students will explore a range of techniques/materials focusing on building foundational skills in drawing, painting and modelling in clay whilst harnessing their own unique creative expression. We will draw inspiration from life & imaginations weaving in the seasons, nature, dreams and story. Participants will also get the chance to work on and develop their own projects from home.

Week 3: Beloved Animal Portrait – Drawing

Choose an animal you love… it could be a pet or some other beloved animal.  This week we will draw your animal using pencil and charcoal in preparation for painting a portrait painted in acrylics.

* Please bring an apron or art shirt. Particularly when we are using acrylic paints, these protect your clothes!

Sketch book

I intend that this course supports the students own creative journey. They should each bring a small sketch book with them, to record and develop their own ideas, dream up their own projects, and practice drawing. Sometimes in the process of art making there is waiting time, perhaps waiting for something to dry, or to take turns in using a particular process or piece of equipment. During these times the student can be using their sketch book.
