Drawing for 16 to 18 Year Olds
Do you like to draw? Perhaps you need drawings for a portfolio submission. This class will take you on a hands-on, whirlwind ride through drawing techniques, exercises, styles, materials and subjects, from raw sketching to more developed studies. Different types of drawing will be examined, including drawing on location, still-life, interiors, fantasy, fashion, animals, nature, cityscapes and so on. You will explore various drawing media and you will have the chance to further develop some of your drawings into watercolour, pastel and other media or on your computer. The course will include individual reviews, group critiques and discussions of drawings by accomplished artists, demonstrations, encouragement and lots of drawing time. The idea is to survey this vast field, learn from your fellow students and tutor, find where your interests and abilities lie and achieve some brilliant new work.
Please note: This course is for students aged 16 to 18 years old only
Please bring an A4 or similar sized sketchbook, it doesn't have to be new as long as there is space for you to work in it. Also, if you have some graphite pencils and other basic materials (erasers, pencil sharpeners, pens etc) that you use then please bring them also. If you don't have either of these please don't feel the need to purchase any before the first day as there will be plenty of materials available for you to use.
