Drawing for the Absolute Beginner

Drawing for the Absolute Beginner

Do you want to learn to draw but don't know how to get started? This is an ideal course for people with little or no experience in drawing. The course involves drawing from direct observation with an emphasis on the line quality, value, shading, negative space and perspective. Students will create texture in their drawings as they explore the aesthetics of mark making. The skills necessary to make a good drawing are developed through basic materials such as pencils and charcoal. Source material will include still life arrangements, working from nature, a live model and photographs. This course will also include a couple of field trips so that the students can experience drawing on location. By the end of twelve weeks you will have the confidence to sit down in front of any subject and start to draw. Suitable for beginners.
Thursdays 6pm - 9pm, Sep 22 - Dec 15 In-person
