Learning Outcomes

By the end of each course, you will have gained a very good understanding and appreciation for the methods and techniques involved in classical drawing or painting, as well as its historical context and how it can benefit your own work regardless of your style.

Learn the rules like a professional, so you can break them like an artist.
- Pablo Picasso

As well as being a guide to traditional atelier (or ‘studio’) practice, these courses and workshops also aim to contribute to your own contemporary work by investigating four of the key components that comprise almost all visual art: design, line, value and form, and then applying what you’re learning to your own expressive end. By improving your technical skills and gaining a greater understanding of these timeless principles, you’ll be able to see your own work in a new light.
