The Summer Drawing Course 2020 -dates to be confirmed.
The Summer Drawing Course is a mini foundation course in drawing. We use
all kinds of different media from sticks to bamboo, brushes, chalks, ink,
and pencils, and the programme would suit absolute beginners or experts.
It’s a week of deep immersion in drawing.
Suitable for both beginners and more advanced artists, this course will
provide a thorough and enjoyable programme of drawing instruction. Working
towards improving your handling of more traditional methods, we will begin
by exploring different aspects of drawing technique, through the use of
experimental and liberating materials and methods. We will work from
quicker and more spontaneous works towards more resolved drawings from the
model. As your understanding increases, drawing from life will become a
more and more enjoyable and fun experience.
