Sketching Churches in Graphite

Marston Magna Parish Church - tonal study


Looking at a typical country parish church for inspiration, we will use this to flex our drawing skills and graphic mark making techniques. In this workshop we will learn how to choose a good subject and to simplify complicated perspective problems into easy shapes, freeing us from getting bogged down with technicalities.

Once the workshop is over, you will be inspired to go out and find more subjects to fill your sketchbook. Suitable for all abilities, as a "cheat sheet" will be available to help you out if you are not confident at drawing.

Classes are designed to be simple enough for you to use the materials you already own. Once you have signed up to a class, you will be sent confirmation and a materials list to prepare for the class. Classes begin at 10:00am in-line with regular Field Breaks in-person classes. There will be a break mid-way and time to chat and swap ideas with the group.

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