Our wide range of drawing and painting courses offer students both a practical guide and an informative insight, providing an opportunity for all levels to explore traditional and contemporary styles.

From complete beginners who want an general overview and introduction to drawing and painting through to more intermediate classes that focus on developing mark making techniques, experimental approaches and use of colour, tone and shade within these disciplines.
