These drawing themed lessons will be suitable for beginners and for those who have attended one of my previous drawing courses. In each session, students will grow in confidence as they learn to apply different drawing techniques to a variety of subject matter. Each session will offer students the opportunity to experiment and try out an appropriate medium for the themed session. Working mainly from images, students will be given individual attention, with methods explained and demonstrated.

Workshop Topics:
Wednesday 18 July – Choice of landscape, vegetable or plant using soft pastels and pastel pencils
Wednesday 25 July – Animals
Wednesday 1 August – Perspective
Wednesday 8 August – Circles and ellipses from drawn images and still life
Wednesday 15 August – Portrait and figure drawing theme from a live model (model supplement fee of between £10 – £12 per person depending on number of students.)
