Service Description

This course is suitable for those who have never or rarely drawn before. Absolute beginners are more than welcome: if you can write your name, then you can learn to draw! In this course, students will work through a series of simple exercises to 'loosen up' and get over the first hurdle of making marks on the paper before going on to learn concepts such as line, tone, basic composition and more. Students will be working in pencil and charcoal. Initially students will work from small, simple objects and as the term progresses and students begin to feel more confident in their drawing, the group will work from a still life. All materials are provided, so no need to bring anything along with you!
