About the course

Back to course listing

Why choose this course?

This 3 day workshop, weather permitting, will be outside where you will be taught the basic skills of drawing and painting landscapes. We will work inside, if necessary, from sketches if the weather is bad.

The course will cover the following topics: skills in draughtsmanship, line, tone, form and composition, and the use of colour. How to create balance and harmony using a variety of 2D media where preferred. Students will be encouraged to experiment and develop their individual style and approach through group discussions and reference to relevant artists.

Suitable for all levels of experience, as a broad range of skills are taught.

Materials

Please note that materials are not included within this course.

Students will be sent a materials list once they have booked a course with instructions of what to bring on their first day.  Materials can be purchased from our School shop which offers an extensive selection for all our courses. Some specialist materials can be purchased from the relevant workshops within the School.

Booking Deadlines

Bookings for all Creative Arts Short Courses will be reviewed 2 weeks before the start date of each course. This will allow the Short Course team to determine whether a course has met the minimum number of students needed for the class to run. If a class has failed to recruit, the class will be re-scheduled and applicants will be informed and where relevant offered an alternative class.

We therefore encourage you to book early before the deadline to avoid disappointment.

Bookings for all short courses are to be made online through the universities online booking system before a course commences. Students are therefore not permitted to enrol or attend a class on the day the course starts without prior arrangement.
