Workshop 1: Getting proportion right using just a pencil

For: Teenagers & Adults learning to draw

Time: 6 – 6.30pm

When drawing we battle with perception, what we think we see isn’t always true. Using our pencil we’ll learn how to measure the world around us.

Maximum 6 people, booking essential

Workshop 2: There are no lines!

For: Teenagers & Adults learning to draw

Time: 6.45 – 7.15pm

The automatic drawing response is linear but in reality there are no lines, there are tonal shifts. Using charcoal we’ll do a fun (and frustrating) exercise concentrating on tones.
