Course summary

This course is suitable for those with little experience of drawing and for those who are more experienced. The course explores traditional and contemporary drawing. It aims to expand the students’ knowledge of drawing using the life model as subject along with other observational drawing exercises. The course involves drawing with various media, including pencil, ink, and charcoal as well as basic techniques such as perspective, anatomy, proportion, tonal understanding and mark making. It also introduces the participant to visual research and to sketchbook practice. Some work outside of class-time is expected and the course is suitable for those who wish to add to their drawing practice.
