Service Description

Treat yourself to a weekly hit of drawing and painting. Perhaps you haven’t picked up a pencil or brush since school days and want to uncover an unused talent or you’re a bit out of practice, need some inspiration and time to develop existing skills. If you are looking to learn some basic skills, build confidence or refresh you practice this course offers the perfect setting to get started , grow and flourish. In the 6 week course we explore different ways of drawing & painting broken down into processes and exercises. Expect to try different materials and a variety of themes from landscape to still life, to pen and ink. Most importantly you’ll have time to observe and capture what you see in your drawings & paintings. Over the course of 6 weeks students will learn how to improve their drawing skills and then develop their work using paints.
