I have used this schedule as a rough outline for the course but we may work fast or slow depending on ability etc. So please see this as a rough schedule. If you have any questions, get in touch!

This course is designed for you to have a little taste of drawing and painting using a variety of media-
ums. Next term we will aim to work on an oil on canvas over a longer time frame, where you can develop your skills in understanding colour and composition, light and shade.

I look forward to a wonderful term!
