During this course the group will explore ways to draw people. Beginning with drawing from a photograph, you'll move on to drawing from life. You'll learn techniques for drawing realistically, then move in to move expressive drawing. You'll use a variety of drawing materials including pencil, charcoal and coloured pencils and pastels. Simple guiding principles, combined with the endless variation of the human form will provide for an exciting and satisfying drawing experience.
For the final two classes, a model (clothed) will pose for drawing from life. All materials are included within the course fee.
