Event description

Description

Want to learn some fun basic drawing techniques?
Experiment with simple pencil, charcoal and graphite?
Relax and follow some easy step-by-step instructions?

Then this mini workshop is for you! Join like-minded people and get creative.

It doesn’t matter if you have never put pencil to paper, or whether you have already started on your artistic journey. There is absolutely no pressure to create a masterpiece on this occasion. I will take you through a series of short exercises to help you free up, try different approaches and gain confidence in your strokes.

This is NOT going to teach you perspective etc. but it will give you confidence to start drawing small objects or even play at some more abstract designs.

Here’s some of what we will cover:

♣ Fun quick exercises to get you relaxed and warmed up.
♣ 7 different drawing techniques to help you improve your observation skills.
♣ Some basic ‘do’s and don’ts in drawing and creative process.
♣ How to decide on your chosen subject-matter.
♣ How to get over ‘making a mess’ and gain confidence in what you are doing.

Here’s what to bring: ♣ Plain paper or sketch-pad (A4 or A3 is ideal).

♣ A range of pencils (B-2B-4B-6B-8B).
♣ Pencil sharpener.
♣ Rubber.

I will also bring some bits and pieces to supplement in case you are a bit short. A little bit about me:

I am an abstract acrylic painter and as part of my process and development I do a lot of drawing, especially with soft pencils and charcoal. In a previous life I was an Art Teacher, but more recently I have been a business coach, specialising in marketing and Social Media. Now I mix the two, as I also work with professional artists to build their businesses.
