Description

Daytime Art: Drawing with Colour with Judi Power Thompson

Thursdays > 10:00am – 12:30pm

Term 2 | 10 May – 14 June

Drawing is a skill which requires concentration and patience. This forces us to slow down in the busy world in which we live and create something awesome. Observation and drawing skills can be learned by anyone at any age and this course aims to equip the participant with the knowledge and tricks to competently draw their favourite subject.

Each week, Judi will demonstrate using the specified materials and circulate in an attempt to help everyone get started on a new and exciting drawing. Discussions on tonal values and shadows will be ongoing. The course will cover simple line drawing, various shading techniques using different media, handling negative space (the space surrounding the subject), working with light and dark colours and overall composition and balance of the completed work.
