The group will look at how drawing is used for investigation, experiment, generating, planning and developing of ideas, and communicating thoughts and feeling

Working from a range of source material including still life and life drawing to sketchbook work and landscape studies the student will be introduced to alternative drawing styles and the use of different materials, with an aim to develop an individual  approach to creating good honest drawing.
