This group is for anyone who would like to learn how to draw and develop their art skills, knowledge and understanding. Art, craft and design take many forms, from drawing and painting to mixed media and collage. For that reason, I propose to take participants through a series of practical exercises to develop confidence and strengthen skills, using a range of media and techniques.
The early sessions will be an introduction to drawing from observation, using a range of media. Each session will lead onto the next, developing in complexity across a number of weeks. I imagine that sketchbooks will be used in the main, and I can loan some drawing tools in the early sessions, but each person will then have to bring their own. We can discuss this at the first session. In later sessions, individuals may want to develop their own ideas, different media and so on; and we could, for example, go outside to work, and/or visit museums/galleries for inspiration.
The group size will vary with venue
