Community Learning – Painting and Drawing

Course overview

This is one of our Community Learning Courses and runs until the end of June.

This course will allow you to tap into your creativity through the guidance of Jan Lueck, a qualified Art Teacher, with a masters in Fine Art from Wimbledon School of Art. With her 25 years of experience, she will guide you through drawing and painting, with specialist techniques.

As Jan is also a practising artist, exhibiting her own work for both solo and group exhibitions you will have insights into the art world.

Furthermore, you can ask Jan Lueck about printmaking, as she is a member of Oxford Printmakers Co-operative (OPC), where she teaches other art courses in Oxfordshire.
