These drawing workshops are organised in two groups of four but altogether they make-up a comprehensive course on drawing. The student will benefit the greatest by signing-up for all eight workshops. Individual workshops can be booked to make-up a mix and match series where suitable.
The workshops will include short demonstrations from time to time, examination of the work of well-known artists and the use of models. This is reflected in the different costs for specific workshops. Use of a variety of mediums and approaches help to reveal drawing as an exhilarating and vital part of the artist’s visual language.
