Learn drawing skills - Passion for graphite!



Join me at one of my drawing workshops at my studio in Derbyshire, near Chesterfield, where we will be exploring different ways of using graphite to create effective, personal and captivating drawings. You don't need to be able to draw to enjoy this workshop - the emphasis is on mark making and covering that white paper with shapes and textures, loosening your drawing muscles to allow you the freedom to experiment. We will look at shading, levels of tone, and take simple ideas to the next level. You'll be amazed at how quickly it all comes together! Using the simplest of materials, you will learn a series of skills you can try at out once you get back home. The day will start with an introduction to the medium with examples of drawings and techniques to try, then after a coffee break we get started! Students will learn the method and how to produce a variety of tones and marks, making the most of the subtle nature of graphite. So we can share materials and ideas effectively, classes are limited to around four people. Classes are fun and relaxed and at the end of each day you will not only have a series of images to take home for framing, but will be buzzing with enthusiasm for graphite! Classes typically run from 10:00 am to 1:00pm but you can choose another slot, i.e. afternoon or evenings, to suit your timetable, so please enquire when you book, thank you. I look forward to seeing you soon!
