Urban Sketchbook for 16 to 18 Year Olds
Walk and draw the urban landscape from skaters on the south bank to peace protesters in parliament square. Record public lettering and street fashion – how many hair cuts can you draw in 10 minutes – improve your observational drawing skills and experiment with new techniques from paint to simple experimental print workshops back in the studio. You will create a visual diary and sketchbook and have more worked up, completed drawings at the end of this course
This will help anyone preparing a portfolio or just interested and curious to express themselves through drawing and sketching in the urban London landscape whether applying for Graphics, Fine art or a Fashion course.
Please note: This course is for students aged 16 to 18 years old only
