Use this course to progress your drawing from “beginner” to …
We continue with the practical approach and take in still life compositions, landscapes, figurative and abstract. Sheila has a variety of exercises up her sleeve, aimed at increasing your drawing skills and giving you plenty of opportunity to improve your technique: from enlarging a tiny flower to something almost 20 times its size (think Georgia O Keefe), to landscapes with fore, middle and back grounds.
The next four weeks will be exciting, fun and fulfilling.
Round off the course with a field trip to get our observational skills up to speed.
Materials: All basic materials are supplied for your course and Sheila advises on the best things in which to invest
