‘The media are not toys… they can be entrusted only to new artists, because they are art forms.’

Course description
Cellar Door
with Inigo Minns

This course explores the fundamental qualities of drawing and image making. Through a series of tests using different media, students spend 8 weeks exploring how we make images and how we can make them better. Starting with architectural drawing formats as well as works from graphic design and fine art, students will develop a series of strategies for bringing more visual intent, beauty and power to their work. Analysing composition, colour, projection, media, and image making techniques, the aim of this course is to develop a unique drawing language suitable for every student project.
