Art Basics will start you using basic media to explore and manipulate materials and understand how to use art as a vehicle for self-expression. Once you work through each media in this workshop you are then confidently able to go to the next step and begin an online workshop in the media of your choice!
There are four videos included in the art workshop that are designed to give you an insight into tools and activities to begin confidently in graphite and pencil, watercolour pencils, painting and dry pastels. You will investigate visual arts elements such as line, colour, shape and texture using a variety of simple media. You will be shown some creative and easy ways to take these techniques and skills further. While gaining valuable practical experience with the use of graphite and pencils, watercolour pencils, acrylics and dry pastels you will be exploring and experimenting with elements of design and having hands-on experience with a variety of traditional and non-traditional media.
