Art Encounters' signature course for the absolute beginner introduces students to the processes and techniques necessary to develop works of art. This course will give students a solid idea of both where their interests and where their strengths lie. Students will experience a series of drawing projects and painting exercises while deepening their understanding of materials and approaches in drawing and painting. The course is taught by a variety of Art Encounters teachers exposing students to the different personalities and approaches of a variety of artists. Students are introduced to materials including charcoal, pencil, watercolour and acrylic paint and work from a combination of still life, life drawing and experiential sources. All materials are included in the cost of the term fee enabling students to explore this interested before spending money on art equipment.
