In the weekly 3-hour session, using pencil and charcoal, you explore a range of techniques, draw objects from life and develop a personal response to the world around you. During the course you will complete a number of practical drawing exercises aimed at building your confidence and skills step by step. You will also be inspired by classic and contemporary artists as we look at drawings throughout history.
Included in the course is a gallery visit led by Mario and an exhibition of your achievements at the end of this run – dates tbc.
Basic materials are provided and Mario will advise which materials are best for you to continue at home.
Course level: ideal for beginners; but also suitable for those who want to brush up on things like perspective.
Please note there will be no class during half term – Monday 23 October
