What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?
Intermediate. This course follows on from 'Drawing 1', but you are welcome to join if you have equivalent experience.
You should be able to follow simple written and verbal instructions, demonstrations, hand-outs and health and safety information, and will be invited to take part in group discussion.
How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?
Handouts, presentations, demonstrations, practical work, individual and group tutoring, and group discussion.
Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
All basic drawing materials are provided.
When I've finished, what course can I do next?
You could progress to 'Drawing 3 - Developing skills and ideas'.
Completing this course gives you a portfolio of drawings with which to apply for our higher level Art and Design courses should you wish to, such as Extended Drawing for Artists and Makers. Alternatively, you could apply to one or more of a wide range of art subjects which use drawing skills to support and explore creativity, such as painting, fashion and textiles, graphic design and sculpture.
You could also (if you feel you need more practice) repeat 'Drawing 2' with another tutor, who will cover the same syllabus using different projects.
