Drawing - Learn to use a range of media
This course is designed to help you learn new drawing skills and enhance those you may already have. We will introduce you to a range of different media and help you to understand which materials and techniques might be best used to create specific, desirable effects.

We will use a variety of reference sources as starting points or inspiration and develop these into something beautiful using the skills learned and practised.

Although we concentrate on learning techniques and acquiring new skills, there is no pressure to achieve a particular level of accomplishment. Each individual's progress is unique and as important as anyone else's.
