For drawing enthusiasts; developing colour application and composition presents a whole new set of innovative challenges. You will explore your awareness of tone, saturation, colour relationships, composition and theory. You are encouraged to begin a sketchbook, which reflects your personal practice, individual interests and colour work of other artists. This becomes a visual diary of your development during the course.

The course includes drawing on location, studying directly from a life model and a taster session in the Gray's School of Art printmaking workshop. This course runs on a Saturday afternoon alongside students from the Mixed Media Drawing course.
