Foundations 1  is the starting point for all new students.  Students will learn or revisit basic, classical drawing and painting techniques.  The course will cover building hand skills using various materials such as graphite, charcoal, chalk pastels and watercolor pencils.  From there we move to painting a Still Life in oils, then mixing and layering colors and finally Impressionistic painting techniques. Each session builds on the other, so that knowledge is built gradually, step by step.
 

Foundations 2 takes the skills learned in Foundations 1 further, enhancing and reinforcing those basic drawing and painting techniques.  A Drawing Intensive session looks at how to render different materials such as glass and reflective surfaces, Self Portraiture blends anatomical knowledge with new painting techniques and a Surrealism project encourages students towards new ways of imagining and creating their own work.

 

Foundations 3: This course follows on from F1 and F2 and goes further into the realm of composition, perspective, and also creating pieces that have more personal elements so that students begin to consider some of the conceptual and theoretical aspects of their work.  New painting techniques and materials will be introduced including watercolor, collage, printmaking and working in 3 dimensions.
