Learning to Draw Better - Bridgwater & Taunton College

Course Overview

Who the course is for

This course is for those that are keen to get back into drawing and sketching or are already drawing and looking for an opportunity to draw weekly. Sessions help artists develop confidence and conviction in their own style and provide opportunities to practice very specific skills.

What makes this course special

This course provides a space where learners are able to stretch and challenge themselves and explore their own style in a supportive, creative and hugely enjoyable environment. Learners help shape the weekly sessions so that the skills learnt and subjects are in large part determined by the interests and aspirations of the group.

What is involved

This course will help you to improve your drawing techniques and encourage experimentation using charcoals, pencils, graphites,rubbers and other tools. The course will include at least one life model session per term.

Assessment Methods

You will be given support and feedback for each task and there is time at the end of each session to collectively contemplate the work of the group.

Progression Options

We offer a range of evening, afternoon and day long drawing and painting courses across both Bridgwater and Taunton campuses as well as accredited full time options (Access and Degree).

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.
