As we are holed up for the dark cold winter it can be hard to find inspiring settings to draw from life. This is where photographs come in; they broaden our radius of inspiration far beyond our immediate surroundings but it can be hard to make satisfying drawings from them. During this course you will explore a range of ways to work from and with photographs. This NEW course explores a range of ways to work from and with photographs. You will learn techniques that will help you draw with accuracy and breathe life into your drawings as well as being given a chance to experiment with the types of drawings you want to create.

Sometimes you will need physical copies of the photographs you want to work from (please see component sheet for details). If you don’t have access to a printer you may want to cut some out of newspapers or magazines. You don’t need to work from your own photographs however we would recommend trying to snap photographs in the week running up to the course of people/scenes/objects that inspire you.

This course is suitable for all levels. Students can move at their own pace depending on their experience, with as much support from the Tutor as they wish.

  • Beginner

    Choose a Beginners course if you are looking for a broad introduction to the medium you are studying. Students spend time learning the very basics of the taught medium, for example, how to mix colours, use different tools, set up an easel. Our Beginner courses are suitable for students with no prior experience, they tend to follow a more structured path than our other courses, ensuring each student receives the guidance they need from the tutor.

  • Beginner +

    Choose a Beginner + course if you are looking to hone your skills, focus on a specific subject area and build your confidence. These courses are suitable for those with some basic skills in and knowledge of the taught medium, but still follow a structured path with guidance from the tutor.

  • Intermediate

    Our Intermediate courses are suitable for students who have considerable prior knowledge of the taught medium or have completed a Beginners/Beginners + course with the Art Academy.

    These courses tend to be less structured and instead are tailored to the classes’ needs and the direction they want to advance in. Choose an Intermediate course if you are looking to improve your skills and have more critical discussions around the work you produce.

  • Advanced

    Choose our Advanced courses if you have considerable knowledge in the taught medium. You are expected to be able to work independently and have critical discussions around your work.

     Our Advanced courses include our Masterclasses.

All attendees must be aged 18 or over.
