DRAWING/WATERCOLOURS & OILS:
This course begins with an introduction to drawing, starting with the drawing method of constructing objects using basic shapes. Student drawings become more developed by the use of light and shadow. Students are encouraged to draw from their imagination or from reference material provided in class to sharpen they’re observational skills. While learning drawing skills, students will explore watercolour basics which will give them a knowledge of colour mixing and a variety of application techniques. The challenges of water colour as a medium sharpen student skills which can be applied to the next type of painting, oil painting. This is when many students begin to flourish combining many of the previously learned techniques into they’re new oil paintings. Students will learn about many different types of applications from dry brush techniques to wet on wet. Students will attempt to paint a wide range of subjects of their choice, some favourite subjects are science fiction fantasy, landscape and portraiture to name a few.
