Painting Connect - New Online Course at RGU

From 06 Oct 2016 To 02 Mar 2017

The course is suitable for students with some or a little previous experience of drawing/painting, who wish to benefit from contact with the art school through distance learning.

Students will enhance and develop their painting skills and techniques through a selection of online projects and home-based practice. Advice and tutoring, both individual and collective, will be delivered through online communication. If practical, students are welcome to attend two face-to-face tutorials for guidance during the course. They will also be able to engage with fellow students by visiting the course online community support forum - where the expertise and experience of the tutor will be regularly available for live chat on a weekly basis.

The course is designed to be fully completed online. In order to present your coursework for tutor feedback, advice will be given on taking photographs of your artwork. You will also be encouraged to keep a visual diary, reflecting your personal practice, individual interests and study of other artists. A digital presentation of student course examples will be displayed at the end of year annual student exhibition.
