About The Course

This 5 week drawing course takes you through the essential basic foundations of ‘observation’ and ‘decoding of information’ through the practical application and exploration of a variety of drawing materials and subject matter.
Some of the subjects include:-
Line.  Tone.  Units of measure.  Perspective.  Working en plein air (in the outdoors).  Angle measurements and Ellipses.  The course will culminate in a session of figurative drawing with a Professional Model (clothed).


‘Brilliant!  I learnt so much, especially angles, perspectives and the correct way to measure lengths (especially drawing with a model).’ Glenys Baynes
‘Well presented and comprehensive learning experience.  Exercises reinforced all the objectives and projects enabled you to build on the experiences.’  Kay Calder
I have a better understanding of angle measurements and perspective, which can be applied to any aspect of my work, as the length of time and more personal tutoring was ideal.’ Carol Rebori
