Tutor - John Wells

This workshop covers the basics of drawing techniques through a practical study of form, shading, colour and perspective.

Participants will gain the skills needed to produce a lovely landscape, still life, figure drawing and more.

Fun and relaxing, this drawing course for beginners is accessible to anyone wanting to explore their creative potential.

Day One

  • Drawing basic shapes.
  • Using shading.
  • Drawing from an assembled still life.
  • Drawing subjects - plants, flowers, animals and birds.

Day Two

  • Building and perspective - bring along a photograph of a street at your favourite holiday destination, or an image of an interesting building. You will be amazed at the results!
  • Drawing people and portraits - participants will discuss the rules of proportion of the human body and begin to look at features of the face, ending in a complete portrait study from a photo of their choice.
  • Life drawing - fun with drawing a life model!

This workshop is a great gift idea for a loved one.
