Beginner’s 6 month Intensive Art Course

There are so many enticing and exciting options when you decide to take up art – how can you choose what to do? It is very easy to fall into doing bits here and bits there and not quite getting a grip of what you could be doing. We bring together lots of different disciplines and offer you the chance to get a grounding in each. We support and encourage you throughout and will help you to take the next step at the end of the course.

We encourage students to develop a creative mindset, with critical thinking, being open to taking risks, being endlessly inquisitive, and taking ownership of their work. This leads to confidence and motivation to take their art practise in whatever direction they wish.

This is a 6 month part time course covering a wide range of materials, skills and practise.

You will be introduced to a number of different media, methods and skills. It will be a very exciting six months.

The Introduction to Art course is an intensive 6 months, committing to two days a week, with an introductory drawing workshop. Throughout we champion drawing – it is a skill that can be taught – it stimulates creative thinking and observation. There will be ongoing homework and students will be expected to keep sketchbooks/journals. Students will work towards preparation for a cohort exhibition at the end of the course.

We encourage students to develop a creative mindset, with critical thinking, being open to taking risks, being endlessly inquisitive, and taking ownership of their work. This leads to confidence and motivation to take their art practise in whatever direction they wish.

Materials will be provided for beginners courses but you will be expected to purchase your own materials as you progress through the course.  Materials will be available through Hampshire Art studio.

Regular tutor guidance in person and via What’s App is provided individually to each student.
