Proportion and perspective can seem like a technical minefield.... Learn how to overcome two of the biggest stumbling blocks when starting to draw.

Spend an enjoyable day with us learning a few techniques to help you to draw with more accuracy and confidence including:

  • Switching off your 3D vision and getting past the interfering brain
  • Measured drawing, getting proportions right
  • The three principles of perspective explained and explored in simple terms
  • Different drawing styles – how to break the rules once you know them!

These workshops take place in Art Safari’s riverside studio, where there is a wealth of material to be seen from the balcony and around the quayside.

There will be plenty of tea, coffee, water, fruit and biscuits available throughout the day.  Lunch is an hour, please bring your own packed lunch or pop into one of the many cafes in Woodbridge.

To help you prepare we will send you a short list of suggested art materials to bring with you.
