SHAPE – TONE – COLOUR THEORY
Level 1 is divided into 3 terms, each term has ten progressive lessons.
Term 1 focuses the absolute basics of drawing and painting. We look for SHAPE within drawing and painting. We will work exclusively in watercolour paints in Term 1, introducing basic watercolour skills and developing different watercolour techniques. Drawing skills are also taught from the absolute basics of holding a pencil through to developing sketching skills.
Term 2 is all about TONE. We teach the importance of looking at darks and lights, firstly in monochrome and then in colour. This term we use gouache paint, an opaque form of watercolour which is very popular with our artists. Drawing skills are developed with an emphasis on shading and looking for tone in drawing.
Term 3 is an introduction to COLOUR THEORY. We will be working in the brilliantly adaptable ACRYLIC paints. This term puts together the skills developed looking at SHAPE and TONE and explores complimentary colour theory. Drawing skills continue to be developed with weekly sketching exercises complimenting the painting skills you will learn.
