Covers both observational skills and the expression of the imagination. It opens the eyes to the so called 'real world' and channels ideas and experiences into colours, lines and shapes.
Core concepts to all art and design areas, such as colour theory, composition and drawing approaches are introduced. Representational skills such as proportion and perspective are taught and the development of each student's original style is nurtured.
Gouache and acrylics are normally used although watercolours and oils can be accommodated.
