We’ve designed a 6 week course with absolute beginners in mind that takes you gently through the core concepts of drawing, teaching you the tricks that make putting marks to paper easy!

  • Relationships - One shape in relation to another or proportion

  • Light and Shadow - Understanding tonal scales

  • Gestalt - Your own style
