Painting 2: Finding Your Way Course - Online
The course aims to further develop skills in drawing and painting; explore new painting subjects and approaches; study the human figure in greater depth; strengthen self-reliance and the ability to express attitudes to the visual world through a personal visual language.
Painting 2: Finding Your Way
This course also builds on Painting 1: Starting to Paint. It progressively requires you to make your own choices of subject and approach. It introduces new concepts and new painting subjects and you will explore some previous subjects, such as the human form, in greater depth. You can work in acrylics, oils or watercolours and you will be introduced to collage. There is a wide choice of projects and you can work on those that best suit your interests. Theoretical studies will help you ‘place’ your work in the context of twentieth and twenty-first century art and you will be offered guidelines to help you evaluate your work.
