6 WEEKS | WED 4-6PM
Clonakilty Community Art Centre
Students engage in a range of activities including observational drawing, cut-out collage, painting and printmaking (lino-cut, mono-print & dry point etching). Tuition is tailored to individual levels and preferences. Ideal for juniors with a flair for drawing and a strong desire to learn and create. Ages 9+| Classes are ongoing and students may enroll at any time.
Structure: This is very fluid and is dependent on level and preference. Drawing is integral to every lesson. Typically 3 weeks is devoted to drawing/printmaking, 1 week to drawing/collage and 2 weeks to drawing/painting. Continuing students may opt to concentrate on particular areas/techniques. For example: 6 weeks printmaking or 6 weeks oil painting (senior students).
