What is the course about?

This is a simple short course, to introduce you to drawing. The aim is to remove the “ internal pressure” the idea of drawing something can sometimes create a barrier for students to approach a blank piece of paper with a pencil. We will show you how to copy from a photograph of your choice. The theme will be pets or a family member, We will use pencil and explore line and shading (which is often referred to as tone).

What previous experience, knowledge or qualifications do I need for this course?

This course is a beginners course, although students with some experience would be able to also utilise any existing skills they have.

What do I need to bring with me?

You will ideally have a range of different grades of pencils for shading (you can buy sets of different H, HB and B values. https://cwpencils.com/pages/guide-to-pencil-grades), A4 paper, rubber, sharpener and a ruler. You will also need a copy of a photograph (see above) to mark grid lines on and copy from.

Are there any additional costs?

Other than what is indicated above, there are no other costs.
