In our painting courses you will explore the freedom of creating form through colour. We like to engage artists in drawing as it naturally comes to them: their natural voice. We encourage all drawing students to find their way with the materials and methods we present, so they can tackle projects and ideas outside the school, with confidence in their abilities.
