This course focuses on learning the correct techniques and teaches the art of drawing through practical demonstrations and one to one assistance throughout each session.

The course has a progressive structure with a new technique and a particular area of drawing being covered each week.

What I'll learn

Please bring a set of graphite pencils, rubber, ruler, sharpener and a sketch book of your choice (A4, A3).


How I'll learn

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 students will need to come prepared with their own materials as laid out above (set of graphite pencils, rubber, ruler, sharpener, sketch book of choice).
