ZEN DRAWING WORKSHOP

Wednesday 24th July 2019 / 10:00 to 13:00 / Leith Hill Place

Drawing is about more than simply picking up a pencil - how do I hold it? What marks can it make? What is the difference between a B and a H. This zen drawing workshop has been an absolute hit with our adult learners as it breaks down a vocabulary of marks into a simple format to help us better understand just what our pencil can do and what to do with it!
