Drawing from Scratch

Sun 13th Jun 2021
1.45pm – 4.45pm

St Mary’s Parish Hall, Teddington

This workshop is perfect for people who have very little experience of drawing and want to gain confidence in their drawing technique. It’s the first step into good practice when drawing with graphite – how to see negative spaces, how to apply the rule of thumb, explore mark making skills with only a set of pencils and a rubber on paper.

Using a selection of pencils and a pad of paper, you will be introduced to a variety of techniques, materials and applications to give you an understanding of tonal and linear drawing. You will learn how to compose and draw whilst observing a  still life. You can then take away these skills to practise with confidence at home, applying them to drawing landscapes, flowers and portraits, as well as extending them on further drawing courses.

Please bring along with you an A3 pad of paper for drawing or sketching, with paper thickness no less then 150g and also a set of pencils including HB , B, 2B, 4B, 6B, 8B and a rubber.

During this relaxed and informative workshop you will be shown new skills and encouraged to be creative, with the full support of expert artist and popular teacher, Karen Iredale Lucas.

The workshop includes lots of tea, coffee and cake to help you along!

“I had no idea I would be able to produce a drawing like that.  It really made me want to learn more.”
