This course has been designed for the beginner with little or no drawing experience. The course is a mix of theory and practical activities to learn basic drawing skills, that will provide a solid base for the student to either continue development at home or perhaps explore the option of other more advanced or specialist drawing courses.
For absolute beginners, this course provides a relaxed and enjoyable introduction to some basic principles of drawing and materials. Students will draw from still-life arrangements in the studio and learn to draw 3D objects on a 2D picture plane, discovering how to plan and draw a simple composition. Explore line, tone, shading and proportion and discover easy and effective ways to build confidence and personal expression. No experience is necessary and all materials are included in the fee.
Students will be given basic information/theory, as well as practical opportunity to put that theory into practice with a series of basic exercises during the day. Students are encouraged to ask questions as they go along.
All materials are provided on the day at no additional cost. You may like to bring a sketching pad – spiral bound, A3 size to keep work in one place.
The theme of the course is relaxed and supportive – there is no prerequisite and is certainly suited to the keen beginner.
