A six week practical course


Sheila Moylan leads this six week Learn to Draw course; a hands on practical course in drawing that will show you how using only a humble pencil to create the texture of soft skin, the hard shiny surface of glass, or how to transform a circle into a sphere that might just roll off the page!


During the course we look at the principles involved in drawing interiors and objects within them (perspective) and how to give weight and depth to any image (tone/shadow); how to measure angles and shapes of what we see without rulers or protractors (just another pencil). Finally we add colour and learn how to create interesting and balanced compositions and produce work that you will be proud to show, even exhibit.



Round off the course with a field trip to get our skills out in the real world.



Materials: All basic materials are supplied for your course and Sheila advises on the best things in which to invest.


This class is fully booked – if you would like to register your interest for our next course starting in a few weeks, please email us
