Drawing is a motor skill, like learning to drive a car or swim; anyone can learn how to draw at any age. The secret is learning to see the world differently. This course will explore a variety of approaches to drawing, including blind, partial peek, basic shape, negative space, measurement and tonal drawing techniques.
You will work from a range of different subject matter, including the face, the body, still life and landscape, using a broad range of drawing materials.
