Our Foundation Drawing and Painting courses will give you the skills, knowledge and confidence to develop a lifelong and autonomous practice.  The focus of these courses is not just on developing your technical skills but also expanding your visual literacy and critical thinking.

FOUNDATION DRAWING 2 is an intermediate drawing course for students that have completed Foundation Drawing 1. *Please note that Term 2 will now be hosted online*

Over the 7 weeks you will continue to develop your individual drawing practice and further build your skills.  In the first half of the course you will examine the perceptual and conceptual within the drawing language, and explore new directions by working through a series of exercises.

For the remainder of the classes you will focus on your own specific projects and imagery, and we encourage you to experiment and explore your unique drawing practice.

We encourage and support you to make the best work you can, by working hard and building discipline you create long term skills that transcend the duration of the course.  All of our teachers are professional artists who generously share their experience and knowledge.  You will be exposed to a diverse range of artistic practice, both historical and contemporary, allowing you to explore your own visual motivation and experience of art.  We recommend taking the foundation courses consecutively: Foundation Drawing 1 – Foundation Drawing 2 – Foundation Painting – Grisaille to Glazing.
