Drawing for Beginners - 8 week online course (via Zoom)

Learn to draw from your own still life


Have you always wanted to learn to draw? This online relaxed evening drawing class is ideal for complete beginners with no prior drawing experience.

Over the eight week course you will gain confidence in your drawing ability as you learn to master the basics of tone, texture, perspective and composition. This course is carefully structured to guide through a range of drawing techniques, building your confidence and defeating the fear of the blank page!

Led by Tamar at The City Workshop Edinburgh, this is a practical and engaging class, perfect for enabling you to disconnect from everyday stresses and find a sense of achievement and fulfillment in the drawing process.

You will be fully supported throughout the course. Classes will take place on Zoom where we'll work through different techniques and explore a range of drawing materials. Alongside these live classes, you will also be able to chat with me and your classmates in our Facebook group, where you can ask questions and share your work.

So take time out from the hurly burly of life, stay cosy at home with a cuppa (or something stronger) and join me in this relaxing drawing course.

What others say...
Tamar’s Drawing For Beginners classes are fantastic - I’d recommend to anyone, regardless of their skills or perception of their own ability. Great atmosphere, Tamar couldn’t be more supportive and encouraging, and the weekly sessions have just the right balance between learning and being able to experiment. Thanks for the encouragement to keep going!

I took part in the 'Drawing for Beginners' course and could not recommend the course, and Tamar as a teacher, enough. Tamar is such a fantastic teacher, so encouraging and knowledgeable and always more than happy to answer any questions along the way. Now I'm no longer hesitant or nervous when it comes to drawing and have had a great time learning and experimenting throughout the course, and continue to do so even after it's finished.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
