What I'll learn
Shading techniques, observational techniques, light and shadow, proportion, perspective, drawing from life, drawing from photographs, drawing with graphite, drawing with colour.
- a set of graphite pencils
- an eraser
- a sketch book of your choice (A4, A3)
How I'll learn
No prior knowledge of drawing is needed.
For the first few sessions the tutor will bring in objects and images for the class to draw, after which the students will be encouraged to bring in their own objects/images suggested by the tutor.
For the first session, you will need to come prepared with your own materials as laid out above (set of graphite pencils, rubber, ruler, sharpener, sketch book of choice).
How I'll be assessed
This course is not formally assessed but students will be taught via group activities, practical demonstrations and one to one tutorials.
Each week, a class handout will be provided which gives further information on the class and topics covered during that particular week.
