  • Heather Spears’ The Creative Eye 

    All working artists struggle to be more creative.  This intensive multi-day course will clearly explain what you’re up against and give you new techniques to draw better, avoid many common drawing errors, and better understand the creative process.  This is a fully taught life drawing course with drawing from various life models each day.  Heather is the author of the amazing book The Creative Eye – which in my experience changed my whole approach to drawing!

  • Heather Spears’ Drawing the head 

    A chance to focus entirely on drawing the head or portrait.  This intensive multi-day course gives you the opportunity to draw directly from life models of all ages – from young toddlers through to the elderly and ethnically different models. A wonderful experience giving you the chance to study a diverse group of models and learn so much about the differences and similarities of the human head.
