What the course is about

<p>During this course for complete beginners, you will receive both group and individual support in order to help you learn more about drawing plants and flowers. Workshops will explore:</p>

<ul>
<li>How to draw plants correctly showing shape and form</li>
<li>How to view light and shade and translate that to your own work</li>
<li>How to use pencils and charcoal to make line, shape and tone</li>
<li>How to use paint to bring your pictures to life.</li>
</ul>

<p>The work is detailed and exacting and should produce very realistic results. You will experiment with a variety of media. This is a structured course with demonstrations of techniques and individual coaching. All our courses are made up of elements of speaking & listening, reading and some writing, and you will work using these elements throughout the course. Some of the skills you gain on this course could help increase your opportunities for employment or working within the community. Learning takes place in a friendly classroom setting, which is a great place for social interaction and helping you meet new people. Practice at home and completion of homework is advisable to enhance your learning experience. This course is subsidised by Government funding so you should aim to attend the whole course.</p>
