Event description
The Zen of Drawing, Drawing Out the Artist Within: 8 week Block; 10am to 1.00pm Fridays from 31st January

About this Event

We shall be Drawing as a way to still the mind and experience being in the present moment. There are five perceptions to learn in order to draw confidently: 1. The Perception of Edges, (Line) 2. The Perception of Spaces, (Negative space) 3. The Perception of Relationships (Sighting and Perspective) 4. The Perception of Light and Dark (Tone) 5.The perception of the Gestalt.

We will be working from Still Life and using a range of mixed media such as pencils, erasers, charcoal, chalk pastels, Chinese ink and pen and watercolour.

For each ‘Perception’ we will practice engaging and enjoyable drawing exercises in order to learn how to draw as well as develop your own unique style and expression at your own pace and in a relaxed, conducive and inspiring learning environment. We will look at other traditional and contemporary artists work to put our own work into context.
