Philosophy:

Art is an integral part of our being , We relate to its stimuli from birth therefore it should be nurtured and encouraged at the earliest opportunity – it will benefit and enrich us throughout our lives.

Aims:

  • Class sizes will be kept small (maximum 10 students for all age groups) this will ensure a more “hands on and individualistic” connection with the teacher.
  • The emphasis for the younger or beginner students will be to initially cover the basic skills of colour , light , shape and texture.
  • From there we will progress to explore the technicalities of perspective , proportion and colour theory.
  • Students will explore “multi-media” approach – working with a variety of materials as they develop their individual skills.
  • All students will be encouraged to hold exhibitions every semester
