The Art course at WQE is a traditional painting and drawing course. It’s important that you enjoy drawing and are prepared to develop your abilities by practice and experimentation, as good drawing is the single most important thing you can learn at this stage. You will learn how to build up a painting from the initial idea to a finished product. Relating our work to that of other artists is an important part of our study and time is spent analysing and writing about pictures that are relevant to what we are doing. By finding out what sorts of things artists paint, we can make our own work belong to a long tradition of painting, and yet be really up-to-date at the same time. Students are encouraged to work towards producing ambitious final pieces which are mounted for display.
