OverviewDRAWING AS SEEING
Our supportive and friendly workshops aim to provide a foundation in observational drawing skills. Learners will be guided in practicing established techniques of working with line, tone, proportion, and composition. Working with still life and landscape subjects, learners will be encouraged to find their own visual language over the course of the six sessions. Learners will have the opportunity to experiment with different drawing media and subjects in a supportive environment, guided by a professional artist. The sessions would be practice based and suitable for both beginners or more experienced artists. Learning will be supported by group critiques and one to one tutor engagement.
