Description

Are you considering applying to a Foundation course at Central Saint Martins or elsewhere but need to develop your portfolio? Do you need one-to-one tuition in fine art by a tutor with extensive experience of the application process? Regardless of your age, experience or ability this course is an excellent place to begin. On this course you will carry out a variety of projects related to drawing, idea development, life study, painting and printmaking, along with a look at art installations and new media. Over the ten weeks you will produce work for your portfolio during class time and, more importantly, through a series of stimulating homeworks, with continual guidance from your tutor will help you improve your technical skills and will develop your creative thinking. This is an opportunity to sample a taste of a Foundation course at art school whilst you follow the discipline area that interests you the most.
