Lifelong Learning - Drawing for complete beginners

Art practice and art appreciation for complete beginners.

Learn and develop drawing skills using line, tone, texture and colour to complete exercises and finished artworks. Use a variety of media, such as pencils, charcoal and pens to develop skills and techniques.

In this beginners class we will look at the work of other artists to stimulate ideas and develop our own art appreciation and practice. This will be a foundation class to introduce the basics of drawing with dry media and will provide a sound starting point for individual development. Some key elements of the course include:

  • Specific drawing activities to introduce the basics.
  • Individual art practice supported and shared in the group.
  • Introduced to the work of other artists both historical and contemporary.
  • Structured sessions.
  • A range of media used.

Suitable for: Absolute beginner.

Duration: 10 weeks.

Course fee: £69 full fee / £48 concessionary fee.
