This course offers you the opportunity to develop creatively, either as a personally enriching interest or as part of your progression towards a career within the creative industries. 

You will develop key skills and knowledge fundamental to the world of art and design. During a series of workshops you will explore a range of two-dimensional materials and approaches, such as tone, mark making, ink, mixed media, colour and painting.

Experimental drawing practical workshops are held throughout, encouraging you to take risks and work in new and different ways.
