Christmas card Lino printing

You will start learning by copying from a two dimensional reference.  After 6 terms, you qualify to move on to drawing from casts using both charcoal and graphite, eventually progressing to grisaille (black and white) oil painting.  Term 13, you will begin to add

colour to the palette, painting from the casts to begin with and then moving on to still life. 


At the end of each six week term, we draw from life, be it from a model, still life or self portrait.

All abilities welcome.  You don’t have to have done any art before to do this course.
