I wish to demystify drawing and show learners some “tricks of the trade." We will produce two drawings by the end of the day. The first piece will look at how to observe a still life and how to express form and texture. We will then look at how to respond to a seemingly more complex subject of an oarsman and a boat by breaking them down into simple manageable shapes.

Observe a simple still life
1. Shape proportion ratio and angles
2. Tone and texture

Oarsman and boat
1. Shape proportion ratio and angle
2. Tone and texture
We will use pencils, charcoal and ink pens.

Abingdon and Witney College is subject to Ofsted regulation and is required to work with all its students to make sure they understand Government initiatives around Safeguarding, Prevent and Fundamental British Values. Information on these matters will be shared with you during your course.

You will also be asked to complete monitoring paperwork, which helps us to deliver course content to the highest quality.

Courses can fill fast, so please enrol early to avoid disappointment. Decisions on whether a course is to run are made two weeks prior to the start date - an email will be sent to you should there be changes to your course or if it is cancelled. Please check your inbox leading up to your course, including the junk folders. For anyone without an email account, our Admissions team will phone you instead.

Basic drawing equipment such as drawing paper, pencils and charcoal will be provided. Learners may also wish to bring their own equipment too.

If learners have a tabletop easel or free-standing easel then they may wish to bring that too, although this is not essential. Charcoal can be messy perhaps wear dark colours of an old shirt to keep clean.

[Insert fee information here – please only include any course materials fee information. For example – how much the course materials are and what the learner receives for paying that course materials fee]

Courses offered by the college are fully or partly funded by the Government and the published fee takes account of this funding.

Before starting a course, the College is required to check you meet conditions relating to that funding, e.g. age, residency status within the UK/EEA, prior qualification level and employment status. In some circumstances (such as with online enrolments), these checks can only be completed after you have enrolled and paid.

If you are unable to pay in full for this course at the time of enrolment, and the course tuition fee is £300 or more, an instalment plan is available. If this is your preference, please do not enrol online but rather call the Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to enrol.

Once enrolled, Admissions will take the first instalment payment from you and pass on your details to the Finance team who will email you to set-up your payment plan. Please return a fully completed instalment plan to Finance as failure to do so could result in being withdrawn from your course.

The 19+ full fee button displays the full fee that may apply. As the rules on fee reduction are complicated, we would encourage you to talk to our Admissions Team on 01235 216400 to discuss these options. You can also visit the Course Fees & Finance page by searching 'Fees and bursaries' at the top of the page.
