Learn about artists and their work in their natural habitat – the gallery.

Study artists in the real world by experiencing the latest local exhibitions. Students will learn about a variety of styles and techniques through observation and extensive research. After visiting the gallery on the first class, students choose their favourite artist or designer to research in greater depth, exploring not only their biography, but also their style, use of colour, and approach to composition. By the end of the course, students produce their own piece inspired by their artist of choice.
