This course aims to encourage you to draw whatever your current skill level
This is suitable for beginners as well as people who may not have drawn for a few years.
No previous drawing experience is necessary, just a willingness to have a go.
This course is intended to help you get going with drawing from objects we all have around our home. Sally will explain some of the techniques we can use to make drawing easier.
Format of the course: Sally will introduce the topic each week and explain how to break it down so you know where to start and you will be given step by step guidance of how to develop your drawings.
What we will draw: You will draw from easily found household objects from your own home/garden. Don’t worry if you don’t have everything - we can be flexible and substitute something similar.
