Seeing through Painting & Drawing

The course aims to provide a wide range of drawing and painting approaches for novices and intermediates alike. The sessions will aide you to build up drawing and painting expertise in a friendly and supportive environment. The overall aim is to guide you to “see” within the context of drawing and painting, which is different to our daily customary perception, which is deeply engrained in us since childhood. Exercising this different way of seeing will eventually give you the skill and confidence to master whatever you wish to draw and paint.
