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 also help students develop greater flow and creative mark-making to support their developing observation skills. Students will be exploring the creative potential of pencil, graphite and chalk pastel.
Observation underpins creative vision
Embracing water colour and ink 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 in ink. Students will be exploring the full creative potential of pen and ink with colour wash.
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.
