Modules & Tutors
At Anteros we recognise the importance of good drawing technique as fundamental to art-making.Tutors Elizabeth Monahan and Sarah Beare each teach five lessons on traditional life drawing, and five lessons on drawing from observation/abstract drawing.
Painting classes at Anteros encompass a good grounding in acrylic, mixed media and oil painting technique plus specialist skills in watercolour and spray painting. Some classes emphasis skills while others focus more on collecting ideas, finding inspiration and developing finished paintings.
Sculpture at Anteros offers technique-led classroom based skills, each one taught by an expert in their field. Our selection of techniques provides a wide-ranging insight into the possibilities afforded by this broad discipline.
Lecturer and researcher, Andrew Taylor, will introduce students to the most important theories of art as well as providing a brief history of the subject. Students will learn by looking at famous works of art before undertaking some research of their own in an area which they find of interest.
