Visual Arts Centre brings to you our MOST popular Art Immersion – Acrylic Painting, Watercolour Painting, and/or Drawing and Sketching course – 24 sessions mixed medium package!

Whether you are a beginner who has never lifted a paint brush since your mandatory art classes in school or someone who has art experience, fret not! This course is suitable for anyone. Within this package, art students will get to do art of 3 different kinds of mediums, ranging from Drawing and Sketching to Painting (Acrylic Painting and Watercolour Painting). This art immersion course will be nothing short of amazing and your art journey will be filled with exploration and wonder!

There are many reason why this package is especially popular with our students! One of them being the flexibility to switch between mediums (e.g after doing drawing and sketching, you can go on to dabble in acrylic painting). For students who are looking to try different mediums, you can look forward to grasping the foundation level of the techniques of using any mediums! On the other hand, for students who are looking to be really well versed in one medium (e.g being REALLY good at watercolour painting), we would recommend you to dedicate all sessions to focusing on and learning that sole medium. Should you choose to do that, you will be able to reach an intermediate level for that medium!

While this art immersion course provides all mediums, you are welcome to join this course if you are looking to solely focus on one medium such as watercolour painting or acrylic painting! For people who are looking to learn only drawing and sketching and wish to reach an intermediate level, you can check out more about the 24 Drawing and Sketching course here!

Visual Arts Centre Art Immersion Curriculum

1. Drawing and Sketching

The practice of drawing and sketching is the foundation of all visual arts. By using only line and tone, you achieve solidity and depth of your subjects. In addition, systematic training in drawing can be deemed as the first step to the world of art. Not to mention, the practice of drawing is therapeutic in nature. It helps cultivate patience, mental alertness, and perseverance. This course is an introduction to the discipline of drawing, through the honoured tradition of the sketch- the conception of every great piece of art.

Our course is suitable for beginners and artists of all levels of experience and age groups. Students will learn basic concepts of proportion, composition, and shading. Furthermore, they will be given exclusive access to various still life objects and plaster casts, designed to help the student learn.

This tradition values both classical principles and innovation, encouraging artists to push boundaries while maintaining a deep respect for tradition. Through rigorous training and critique, artists within this tradition cultivate a strong foundation for creative exploration and artistic excellence.
