The Programme

Drawing is a learned skill that anyone can achieve with direction and practice. Learning to draw can be the gateway to self-expression and appreciation of the world at large. This  workshop will cover the basic principles and techniques of drawing such as proportional measurement, perspective and shading. The mediums used will be graphite, conté, and pen. The focus is to build perception skills and hand-eye co-ordination, as well as demonstrating to participants how to teach these skills using simplified, high success techniques. You will be amazed at the representational work you can create with just a little instruction. The afternoon session will involve painting skills as well as curriculum sharing.
