1-day workshop

Wednesday 11 September 2024, 10am - 4pm

Yes, everyone can learn to draw! No special abilities are required! In this one day drawing class for beginners, discover an enjoyable method to learn to draw ‘things that actually look like things’, with your own personal and expressive twist. There will be guided drawing exercises to balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain, supporting you to calm down your 'inner critic' and tune into more creativity and intuition. The fundamental skills of drawing will be introduced, and the media covered will include charcoal, pencil, ink and pen.

All materials provided. Please bring an apron or wear clothes suitable for an art studio. Please bring a bag or portfolio for taking your work home at the end of the session.
