Creative Arts Practice - Drawing with the Imagination - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

This course is open to those who are looking to explore their own imaginative creativity through drawing, mark making and colour in the company of an artist and teacher.

This is a new leisure course to us and one we hope will provide the opportunity to work with a independent artist and teacher to explore your own creativity through the questions.
What is imaginative creativity? Where do I find it? Am I capable of imaginative creativity?

The course will explore your imaginative creativity through joyful exploration of drawing, mark making and colour. Over the six weeks you will develop a series of sketches, images and pages in your sketch book, which explore different starting points such as colour and scraps of drawing. We will provide a sketch book which will end up being full to the brim with ideas, fun, thoughts,painting and collage.
Please bring what art materials you have, such as paint, pens and pencils, and tools such as glue and scissors. Each class will be based on a different starting point, so advice as to what to bring in will be given each week. There may also be potential to use the printmaking facilities within the building.

You will be asked to bring in some art materials to work with each week.

Assessment Methods

There are no formal assessments for this course.  You will receive regular formative feedback from an experienced lecturer and also peer support and critiques.

An apprenticeship has been the best option for me since I benefit from working in the industry as well as gaining a qualification. College days give me time to work on my assignments and explore features in the software I haven’t covered at work. During the rest of the week, I develop client relationships which help build my confidence and improve my ability to express ideas.
