This course will take place online via Zoom.
This is a Zoom course using blended learning methods, for example, short videos, shared screens and breakout rooms for small group work.

The course will cover practices using various media i.e. pencil, charcoal, pastel, watercolour, acrylic, pen and ink that vary from term to term.
