Discover and Sketch

Ref: C2226934

With paper and pencil, discover the pleasure of drawing the world around us. Each week the group will spend time creating sketches using different media or techniques outside in a local park. Your tutor will demonstrate and share her sketching secrets. Plus, ways to address physical difficulties will be found through one-to-one tuition, in order for everyone to access the learning. There will be a plenary session with the whole group at the end of each session.
