Service Description

Course Outline 8 weeks - 2 hour 30 minutes sessions Drawing is the foundation of all art – and is an essential skill for watercolourists. Learning and practising the skills of drawing is also enjoyable, relaxing and satisfying. Drawing can be done anywhere from the sofa in front of the TV to the beach and the bush. This course is designed as an introduction for beginners, but also as a refresher for more experienced artists, allowing you to devote time each week to practise your art in a friendly, encouraging atmosphere. We practise creating the illusion of space and distance with the basic marks and shapes: the line, the sphere, the cube, the cylinder and the helix. We do exercises in tonality; linear perspective, composition, texture and using our imagination. Each week there will be: tutor demonstrations; visual presentations; reference books; and a still life or other arrangement to draw, with emphasis on the natural world. Exercises will have options at different levels, so beginners can gain confidence, building essential skills and more experienced artists can develop their art, take a fresh approach and meet challenges. We will do this while exploring a number of traditional drawing methods including graphite, charcoal and pen and ink. Artist’s quality drawing materials and equipment are included in the course fee. However students should bring their own A3 visual diary and may like to bring their own pencils, sharpener and eraser, especially if they do not wish to share class materials.
