Designed to help those moving on from the beginner’s courses, this course will introduce different media and more involved drawing and colour mixing with each ten-week block focusing on a different subject. The terms can be booked individually and studied in any order.


  • Term 1 will consist of trying out materials and media that you may not have used before such as coloured pencil, pen and ink, and other paints, as well as varying papers and vellum. Starts: September 2014
  • Term 2 will look at how you begin to draw something more complex, like pineapples. Starting simply, and by using measuring techniques, we will unravel the mysteries of the complex form. Starts: January 2015
  • Term 3 focuses on colour theory and how to mix the best colour for the job. Exploring colour with a limited palette. Starts: April 2015
