Generally a project will commence with drawing skills, either from reference sheets or direct observation. Direct observation drawing is encouraged whenever possible. A theme will typically be explored with studies before embarking on a final piece. This is often a painting or coloured drawing that will be completed over the course of about 3 or 4 weeks. Some projects are completed in mixed media. Although observation is the starting point for all projects some projects may include an element of abstraction and self-expression. In most projects children produce work that is representational, and the focus is on painting and drawing what you see. Some projects draw references to Artists both past and present.
