Comments about Painting 3: Advanced Course - Online
The course aims to improve the quality of practical work; further develop use of a personal visual language; help students to plan and complete a major programme of practical work and become independent as artists.
This course will help you make the transition from self-motivated student to independent artist. With the help of your tutor and the course guidelines, you will plan your own study programme and by the end of the course you will have demonstrated your ability to conceive and develop innovative visual ideas and take them to a successful conclusion. You should normally have already completed a Level 2 course in painting before embarking on Painting 3: Advanced, but direct entry onto the course is possible for more experienced artists who wish to work one-to-one with a professional tutor. All students choose their own tutor from the OCA portfolio of advanced painting tutors.
- Develop your study programme in discussion with your tutor
- Design and complete a series of progressive and related projects
- Write project commentaries
- Maintain a reflective learning journal
- Produce an extended written project of 5,000 words.
You are allocated a tutor and receive their details in your course pack. You work from the course materials and send regular assignments to your tutor. These are returned to you with comment and advice. The course fee includes tutor feedback on your set assignments, but you can purchase feedback and comment on additional pieces of work if you wish.
