About the Course

On this workshop we will start by observing things in detail before moving on to shape, line, proportion, measuring, source materials, mark making, texture, light, composition, shading and materials such as pencils, paper and charcoal. In the morning, you can expect lots of drawing exercises to teach technique and the art of ‘looking’ and in the afternoon, you will put all this into practise by creating your own drawing. All materials provided. One to one tuition within a small group of five.
