Take the fear out of drawing on a fun one-day workshop.  Pick up your pencils and learn how to tackle your sketches with bravado - inspiring tuition from Claudia Myatt.

Lack of drawing ability is one of the biggest obstacles to sketching from life or creating a good painting.  But it’s a skill you can learn.

Claudia will lead you through some basic exercises that will show you how to look at the world with an artist’s eye.  Good for complete beginners or anyone who feels the need for a reminder of the basic practices. All you need is a pencil and paper!

We’ll cover:

  • reasons to draw – why it’s good for all of us, not just artists
  • the versatile pencil – how to develop a vocabulary of mark making, using different types of pencil and related media
  • different types of pencil as well as pens and other drawing tools
  • when to use tone, when to use line
  • connecting hand and eye – basic techniques to develop observation

We will provide a pdf which includes a list of recommended materials (though you are welcome to start with whatever you already have) and full details of the exercises given in the workshop.
