This course is also ideal for anyone needing to increase their UCAS tariff points, offering 285 at Distinction, 225 at Merit and 165 at Pass levels. This is a stimulating and challenging course designed to encourage exploration, experimentation and risk taking, which will extend your critical independence before you decide on your preferred medium for your final project and end-of-year exhibition. You will learn essential traditional art, design and craft skills alongside key creative digital programs.

Life Drawing - All Levels
by Neville - October 2017

Started career as cartoonist Eagle Girl Robin and drawing live telling stories BBC/ITV childrens progs. before becoming music entertainment staff producer. So it was with trepidation started once more with Life classes at RACC.very rusty seeing all the faults. however tutor is marvellous very accomodating allowing freedom introducing different approaches showing various artist's style etc. and easy with everyone giving simple help and advice. Continuing and also going to try the Portraiture class. Richmond College is excellent.
