For absolute beginners I teach the basics of drawing, such as the rules of facial proportion, simple perspective and how to shade with a range of pencils.

A typical 8 week beginners' drawing course would be:

Know the rules of facial proportion.
Create faces (old, young, male, female etc).
Produce a tonal drawing from a supplied handout.
Use pastels to produce a landscape.
Use pen techniques (cross-hatching, stippling etc) to produce a scene.
Use pen techniques (cross-hatching, stippling etc) to draw an animal.
Use coloured pencils to match half a portrait.
Produce a still-life drawing from primary sources using a range of pencils from HB to 6B.
Develop your favourite works or work on own chosen theme.

For a beginners painting course the week by week menu would look something like this:

1

Watercolour tips and tricks.
Wet on wet, scraffito, wax resist etc.
2 Produce a watercolour landscape from a supplied handout.
3 Use watercolours with masking fluid to produce a portrait.
4 Produce a still-life using watercolours.
5 Paint an Impressionist style landscape in acrylics.
6 Use acrylics to paint a portrait.
7 Use palette knife/card to produce a painting in acrylics.
8 Develop your favourite works or work on own chosen theme.

For more advanced students, I set projects which last several weeks so that artwork can be developed and worked into a final piece. These projects are usually set around themes such as "Urban Landscape" or "Motion" where we would look at how other artists have portrayed these subjects. Students are encouraged to experiment and leave their comfort-zones to work in media and styles they are unfamiliar with.
