Bookings will close on Wednesday 7 October.

For beginners or returners to drawing. An introduction to some of the most fundamental skills of drawing and seeing as an artist.

Aims: you will earn how to use graphite drawing pencils, understand and practice mark-making, and make basic shapes. You’ll then learn how to apply that to drawing what you see, how to check proportions are right, see negative shapes – the spaces between things – and how to scale things up and down. We’ll practice these skills with lots of observational drawing, looking at simple objects you can find around the home.

Structure of the Day:
Login in using the link provided beforehand ready to start at 10am. We will have breaks around 11a.m. and for lunch between 1pm and 2pm.

If you want direct feedback on your work from Caroline, share your photos with her via WhatsApp or email during the day.

Materials
A4 sketchbook.
Please gather whatever art materials you have. These are what we recommend:
• B and 2B graphite pencils.
• a tin of at least 12 good quality colour pencils.
• Water soluble pencils will give you more options, in which case add round and flat brushes and water pots.

For anyone who wants to learn or practice their skills of drawing from close observation, a useful skill for creating your own designs.  Some basic drawing skills will be useful as we will be doing some observational drawing.
