During their exams, they’ll learn more about the history of art and common techniques used by the greats.
Aspiring artists can learn all about Picasso, Braque, Monet, Courbet, Delacroix, etc.
Once you’ve finished your A Level, passionate artists can consider going to university to study art.
This is when they'll learn a great deal about drawing with charcoal, pencil, inks and painting with watercolours, aquarelle, acrylics, etc.
For those not interested in doing art for their career, they can enjoy art workshops and classes for art as a hobby. Generally, you can do weekly art classes focusing on topics like still life, life drawing, sketching, drawing landscapes, etc.
Private tutorials are a great opportunity to get advice from an expert while learning more about the techniques that you’re interested in (comics, mandalas, graffiti, etc.)
