Service Description

This course will give children a useful skill set in drawing which they then may apply to anything else they draw at home. Children will start to feel particularly good and proud of themselves with these newfound drawing skills! Lucy Parham also teaches adults and teens with us, and has adapted this course to suit a much younger audience. Building on the student’s own interests and previous learning, we will look at progressing our drawing skills as well as discovering and developing our own artistic vision. The drawings produced will serve as a reminder for areas of further practice, and, for those who wish, the course is designed such that it can be repeated, each attendance deepening the student’s understanding. Week 1) Intros by way of sharing an artwork we like and our favourite drawing we’ve done Week 2) Line drawing and shape: Still Life objects Week 3) Mass drawing and patterns of light and dark: The Sun & Moon Week 4) Value: Darkest to Lightest! Morning to Night! Week 5) Edge: Soft vs Sharp! Bring your own objects in. Week 6) Unity in drawing: 'Same same' Week 7) Variety in drawing ' Differnce everywhere!' Week 8) Drawing with the brush 'not with a pencil?!!' Week 9) Mastercopies: make a drawing of your favourite artwork. Week 10) Memory drawing: Now you see it now you don't! A playful class challenging students to remember what they just saw. This course is designed and owned by Lucy Fyffe Parham. While Lucy is on maternity leave, the course will be taught by Meg Buick.
