DRAWING CLASSES

There are three types of drawing classes that we offer. One is a Drawing Skills Workshop, Charcoal and Soft Pastel Workshop and the other is a Drawing Class. It is recommended that you have completed the Drawing Skills Workshop first, and learnt the fundamentals in drawing, in order to get the best out of the Drawing Class.

DRAWING SKILLS WORKSHOPS

 

These 3-hour Drawing Skills Workshops are designed to be an introduction to various drawing skills that can be used to create your own masterpieces at home. They are suitable for children in Grades 3 and above (including Adults).

 

During the Workshops, students will be taught the following, with plenty of opportunity to practice what they have learnt:

  • Different values of pencils and how to use them

  • Shading using various lead pencils (2H, HB, 2B, 4B, 6B)

  • Drawing simple 3D shapes and forms

  • Proportions and tips on getting accuracy when copying

  • Perspective and depth in drawings

  • Observational drawing tips

  • Shading techniques such as hatching and cross hatching used in illustrations

  • Blending rules using coloured pencils.

What’s provided?

Included as part of the session price, you will also receive on arrival:

  • An A4 Visual Diary (Sketchbook) to work in, and take away at the end;

  • Your own set of shading pencils that includes various grades, sharpener and eraser, and also a black felt tip pen. You will use these during the Workshop and you can then take them home at the end to continue to practice with.

 

What do I need to bring?

You may like to bring your own coloured pencils, although we will provide some for use on the day.

 

It would be a great idea to bring along a specific picture that you may like to learn how to sketch, and if time permits, we can provide tips on how to go about drawing it. It is unlikely that there will be sufficient time to complete the drawing in this workshop, though, however the Drawing Classes cater for this.
