Autumn Term - Drawing & Portraiture

Starts Tuesday 20 August, 10 - 12.30pm with Tess Glen


Class Details

Our classes are designed to encourage people who haven’t picked up a pencil or brush to draw or paint since their school days and show them that art is something we can all do and enjoy. The course will focus on portraiture, but not to the exclusion of everything else. Expect to explore different ways of mark making in pencil, ink, pastel and charcoal, every week learning where your strengths and preferences lie. From holding your pencil to copying Masters expect to begin to describe what you see and feel with like minded students in our relaxed and encouraging studio. Gain confidence, enjoy proving yourself wrong and start to experience all the benefits drawing can bring. "I found I can draw and improve. I love the classes and now happily spend hours practicing. It's been and is such a pleasure". Suggested course progression - approximately 4 terms before moving on to Anyone Can Draw 2 or a painting or illustration class or just drop in and out and come for the fun of it. All materials and refreshments are included in the course fee.
