Drawing Workshops

Ref: C3531075

Drawing workshop 2 is designed to give students an opportunity to explore a variety of drawing based activities in a supportive and welcoming environment. Learners will be able to try out different drawing materials such as pencil, charcoal, pen and ink and be introduced to a variety of techniques for using them. Over the six week duration we will experiment with different mediums and aim to gain a basic grasp of what can be done with each one using a wide range of reference material in the form of reproductions to work from,in addition to this some actual natural forms will also be available for those who wish to try working from observation. Drawing is an extremely broad medium and attempt will be made to show learners that there are many different ways to express oneself within it. The emphasis will be on experimenting and enjoying the process and variety rather than being too formal and prescribed.
