Art Workshop - Drawing and Sketching

Drawing doesn’t mean trailing a line around things - it means seeing and reporting the relationships between things. Learn the basics in this one-day workshop.

Description

Drawing is a non-literary way of looking and uses the skill to put down on paper what is seen in a two-dimensional way.

 

By the end of the workshop, you’ll be able to:

  • Describe the materials which may be used for drawing and sketching
  • Observe your subject so you can draw it
  • Demonstrate an understanding of composition and perspective
  • Demonstrate an understanding of form and contour
  • Think in shapes
  • Use tone to create depth

A list of materials required (approximate cost $25) will be sent out when course numbers are confirmed.

 Note: Courses need a minimum number to go ahead so if we don't have enough enrolments a few days before the start date, we have to cancel. We'll let you know by email so please check yours regularly. If you need to cancel your registration, here are our terms and conditions: "What You Need to Know".
