What is the course about?

This course will build on the skills learned in the introductory drawing and sketching course. You will further develop your skills and knowledge in drawing and sketching, through use of a wide range of materials and techniques. You will adopt an increasingly focussed approach to selection of subject matter whilst developing a more focussed understanding of other artists and their approaches to drawing and sketching.

Why should I choose the course?

This course is ideal for anyone with an interest in developing their skills and knowledge in drawing and sketching. The course is suitable both for those who completed the introduction course and those with some previous experience in drawing and sketching.

What will I learn?

You will develop a wide range of drawing and sketching techniques. You will apply your developing knowledge of layout and composition, creating focal points, line and tone drawing, colour, texture, and form. You will use a wide range of drawing media such as pencil, pen, charcoal, pastel, and graphite. You will be encouraged to work from a focussed subject matter through negotiation with your tutor, which may include landscape, seascape, architecture, portraiture, or still life.

You will deepen your understanding of drawing and sketching artists, in order to further your understanding of contextual references and to inspire your own artworks.

If you would like more information on the learning outcomes, please email ACLenquiries@wvr.ac.uk.

What will the course lead on to?

We deliver a range of accredited art and design courses, which may offer suitable progression for the next academic year.

Drawing and sketching is a fundamental skill in all aspects of the arts, including fine art, architecture, illustration, animation, graphic design, fashion design and product design. Artworks created on this course can contribute to your own portfolio for use in interviews situations within the creative industries.

Why should I choose to study the course at Warrington & Vale Royal College?

Here at Warrington & Vale Royal College we have a team of dedicated, experienced staff who can share their extensive knowledge and skills with you. Learning in a friendly and inclusive environment, you will be fully supported to achieve your goals.
