Expressive drawing, L1 – July 2018

Another fabulous weekend in my studio teaching drawing and mixed media – doing what I love doing with a group of students looking to learn and enjoy themselves.  Can’t beat it really!

Wonderful warm weather after an unprecedented heatwave but with 2 fans we managed to keep the studio cool so as not to overheat during what Julie described as, “a gentle but intense 2 days to explore technical drawing and experiment with more creative techniques [in a] lovely environment, safe space, unpressurised re-final accomplishments.” Alistair, who attended the course to improve his drawing before going to university next year, described the highlight of the course as, “The confidence it has given me.”

“Brilliant! Really enjoyed the structure, the relaxed but focused tutoring.  At last 4 new techniques and a general approach to learning and experimenting – given me confidence to try new ideas and practice what we have learnt.  Good tutor, good course, good company – perfect sized group [10].
