Art Courses in Drawing, Acrylic, Watercolour and Oil Painting

We understand many art students wishing to perfect their skills in drawing, acrylic, watercolour and oil painting. For this reason, we have created a new set of art short courses offering training in mediums such as drawing, watercolours, acrylic and oil painting. These courses will acquaint our students with different possible approaches to the art of drawing and painting while also providing learners with essential artistic skills and techniques. Each art course offers an exceptional experience to develop your practical art skills and explore the history and theory of art.

Each course provides you with the opportunity to explore a specific medium, genre or technique in a very in-depth fashion. By the end of each course, you will have acquired a solid understanding of various media and materials, which will allow you to progress and experiment further with your art practice.
