On this course you will build upon your existing knowledge and understanding of drawing and painting through studio-based practice.

This will strengthen confidence in observational and technical skills and offers an opportunity to create a personalised project in the second semester.

You will also be encouraged to keep a visual diary, reflecting your personal practice and individual interests including the work of other artists. This is intended to become a personal journal of your development during the course.
