Study a Drawing for Textile Art, Design and Fashion Foundation course with OCA

This course is designed as an introduction to drawing for textiles and contemporary drawing practice more broadly.

You will be introduced to expressive, gestural methods alongside more traditional, representational approaches, in order to provide you with a broad visual vocabulary of techniques.

The course authors hope to encourage an experimental curiosity and an open-minded playfulness in your approach to drawing, grounded by a solid base of skills and theoretical knowledge.

Course Aims

The course aims to:

  • Introduce a range of media, techniques and approaches relevant to drawing practice.
  • Develop the required observational and motor skills used in drawing.
  • Encourage an experimental approach in order to develop your own creative path.
  • See your work in the broader context of contemporary practice.

Course Outcomes

Through the course, you will:

  • Demonstrate a greater understanding of the possibilities of drawing, be able to demonstrate more mastery of drawing media and materials and show an improved ability in looking at and interpreting what you see.
  • Gain an understanding of where drawing sits in the wider creative process, and display an awareness of contemporary approaches to drawing.
  • Have more confidence in your potential as an artist, designer or maker by showing inventiveness and creativity.
