With access to both life drawing classes and workshops, you’ll produce work in a range of mediums and develop a strong understanding of how painting crosses other media. Taught by painters who have exhibited internationally, you’ll also visit artist studios in London, painting shows across England and learn to understand exactly how drawing is fundamental to any painting practice.
You’ll explore oils, acrylics, watercolours and spray paint, and investigate how different paints are made. You’ll examine how contemporary painters use long-standing traditions in mark-making, processes and techniques, and consider colour theory as used in painting now and in the past.
In the first year, you’ll spend your time among other painting students learning how to propose and develop your own painting projects. In the final two years you’ll develop your skills in a themed painting studio taught only by painters, where you'll have your own work space to experiment, develop your ideas and show and talk about your work. These studios are chosen at the beginning of your second and third year.
