Level 3 Painting

Course Description

Teacher to contact with questions: Ms L. Nicholson

You will build on the skills developed at Level 2. This level is very different to the others as it evolves around you and your journey through the exploration of medium of painting and drawing. The boundaries are non-existent. You are the creator of the medium of your own works using all the skills and knowledge you have acquired. You will be involved in tutorials and will have the opportunity to discuss and display your work. Terms 3 & 4 are folio time around a theme of your choice.

You can opt into any level but suggest you talk to Mrs Nicholson if you are thinking about Level 3 without having done Level 2.
