More about the course

We will explore materials such as pencil, pen and ink, graphite, conte, pastels, coloured pencil. We will also explore a range of surfaces to draw on.  We will learn techniques such as blending, broken colour, cross hatching, frottage, wash brush, stippling. We will look at artistic concepts that will empower you to critic your own work and know how to improve it. Tools, themes and processes will also be demonstrated and tried. Drawing participants will enhance their understanding and meaning of the term Drawing by observing, interpreting, creating and expressing the world through the visual illusions that drawings create. If you do not know where to start, this is it!!
