In this 8-week Course:
We study elements of design and patten-making for decoration of functional items. All sorts of design projects and inspiration will be explored, most of which can be created with the simplest art tools such as pens, markers and paper.
This course is ideal for not only experienced artists but also for people who have never been interested in formal or fine art, and any level of artistic ability is suitable for this course.
Benefits of this Course:
As we age our motor skills decrease, unless we keep our muscles toned. Fine motor skills are essential for all tasks that we use our hands for, and by developing skills in designs that are created by hand, we engage and exercise our hand muscles.
Evidence has also shown that mental focus on drawing activities, including making designs and patterns, increases cognitive functioning, increasing neural pathway development and preventing memory loss.

Over these 8 weeks we will be exploring elements of design, including colour, style, layout and typography, through the development of Vogue Magazine covers throughout the period 1909 – 1940
