Event description

Description

Wednesday evenings, 6 November to 11 December, 18:00 - 20:30

On this six-week course you’ll explore drawing techniques from reference to a range of organic and man-made objects often with particular themes. The course will reference still life artworks by a range of artists and explore composition, measuring, line/tonal drawing, charcoal/pastel drawing and paint. Towards the end of the course participants are encouraged to assemble their own still life arrangement to act as a self-portrait made out of personal objects and/or objects of particular interest.

Who is the course for?

This course is ideal for beginners but artists with some previous experience may wish to attend to develop their drawing ability and gain tutor advice and guidance.

Do I need to bring anything?

Basic materials can be provided but students are encouraged to bring a basic kit of pencils, charcoal, chalk pastels, rubber, ruler etc. Towards the end of the course participants should bring either acrylic or oil paints depending on their preference, brushes and a palette. Advice can be given of what materials to buy but the following colours (or nearest equivalents) are essential: Ultramarine Blue, Raw Umber, Yellow Ochre, Cadmium Red, Cadmium Yellow Pale and Titanium White.
