Who is the course for?
People interested in communicating through drawing. No experience required – the structure of the course means that it’s suitable for people of all abilities.
Reinvigorate the hand and the eye through fun and practical drawing exercises designed to develop confidence and variation in your drawing. Each week of course focuses on a different aspect of drawing in order to develop a broader understanding of drawing practice through hands-on learning. The final week of the course will focus on applying different manners of drawing to Fine Art printing techniques.
1. By the end of the course you will have broadened your understanding of the materials and activities engaged in drawing.
2. You will begin to discover your personal approach to drawing
3. You will become familiar with the application of drawing in printmaking
Class size is restricted to 8 to allow appropriate access to the course leader during class. During the course, you will complete a number of drawing exercises in class. You will receive guide notes on drawing. You will be given opportunities to discuss your work with the tutor.
