  • Guided by our lovely tutor Bern, you will train your creative eye so you can accurately record what you see.  
  • Over the course of 10 weeks you can build both your confidence and your skills, developing your style stage-by-stage. 
  • You will learn to be more experimental and observant in your work so that you can develop your drawing further once the course is ended. 

What does this course cover?

You will be taught how to really ‘see’ what you are looking at and how to record what you see on paper, alongside exercises that will encourage you to be more focussed and experimental.

Materials required for the course: a box of medium or thin willow charcoal, one each 2B & 4B pencils, a vinyl or plastic eraser, masking tape . Paper is available for a small charge (20p for Cartridge, 5p for Plain Newsprint).
