Learn To Draw

Wednesday 6th Mar - 10th Apr (6 weeks), 6.00-8.00pm, $180


Artists can do magic…or so it seems. Some people have a natural ability to see something – really see it – and draw what they see near perfectly. In this specialist drawing class we get to delve into those seemingly magical skills and learn how to look at a subject and draw it. We will cover everything you need to get practicing on your own, from the basics of what pencil to use, when to use it, how to use it, and how to uncover your own natural style. We will experiment with pencil, charcoal, pastel and ink. Each student receives a start up drawing materials pack is included.
