One, a ‘self-directed’ stream with ‘one-to-one’ tuition for students who bring their own projects in with them to progress in class and where they can avail of advice and mentoring on an individual basis; and another ‘taught-stream’ where some of the fundamentals of ‘picture-making’ will be taught, ie. fundamentals of drawing; light and shade; colour theory and practice; pictorial composition; perspective; portraits; drawing the figure, elements of landscape; selecting a subject for one’s stage of development, lessons from great artists, etc.
