In depth tuition to will enable students to improve their technical skills and learn a structured approach to drawing. Students will increase their confidence in drawing even the most complex of subject matter and gain a deeper appreciation of the process of drawing. Graphite pencils are used during the first day.
Students will learn a variety of measuring techniques to ensure accuracy of vision, scale, proportion, and perspective to create naturalistic convincing looking drawings. Adopting a materials-led approach will help students unleash the descriptive and creative potential of graphite pencil. This session enables students to learn more skills and techniques to enhance their drawings with tone and line.
Draw more – see more
Learning to observe details is about training the artistic eye to develop a higher level of critical vision to enable even more details to be recorded than first thought possible. ‘Learning through drawing’ is what being an artist is all about. Exercises this session will help students develop greater flow and creative mark-making to support their developing observation skills.
Observation underpins creative vision
Embracing colour in this final session will allow students the opportunity to put everything they have learnt into practice to create a well observed drawing that combines accuracy of observation with the emotive power of colour and expressive quality of creative marks-making. Students will be exploring the full creative potential of colour pencil crayons.
By the end of the course…
Students will go home feeling confident in their observation and technical skills, happy they have the skills to render accurately what they see, and excited to have the creative potential to create drawings infused with personality and self-expression.
