Drawing for Beginners / Intermediate

Do you want to explore new ways of describing the world around you? Have you ever wondered if there are other ways of recording objects, thoughts and ideas which might stretch the limits of photographic or figurative representation? This short course will teach you about some traditional methods of drawing as well as allowing you to explore some novel ways of mark making. Be prepared to work with conventional and unconventional materials; small-scale and large-scale; independently and in a group; in controlled ways as well as expressively. The process of drawing is central to this course rather than pretty outcomes! Just don’t wear your best clothes.
