***To avoid a booking fee and pay by card, cheque or cash, please contact dot-art Services directly on 0345 017 6660***

Mondays 6-8pm starting 3rd October 2016 (£160 for 10 sessions)

  

Program

This course is designed for anyone who enjoys drawing.  If you are a beginner, the course will lead you through the basic principles of drawing, by instruction and experimentation and for those who already have experience of drawing, the exercises will ask you to reconsider the basics and challenge you to try to work in different ways.  A mixture of still life and the garden landscape will be used to provide a great variety of subject matter. 

Each week the session will focus on a different drawing principle or idea for you to consider, giving you both direction and freedom to experiment.  Throughout the course you will be encouraged to try using different materials and scales and to develop your own ideas and knowledge about drawing, through discussion and by examining the work of other artists.
