Drawing isn’t a gift, granted to some but not others; it’s a skill that can be acquired by anyone with reasonable hand/eye co-ordination and a determination to improve. It’s also essential if you want to achieve the same fluency and ease in your work that is so admired in the paintings of the masters.

In this one-day course, we look at the essential elements of drawing practise that will give your work the authority you desire the next time you pick up a paintbrush.

All comers welcome.
