Drawing for Beginners
Drawing is an important skill for many branches of visual art and design. Gain confidence in this foundation skill in a relaxed 8 week studio course with Robyn White.
Robyn will help you open your mind to see like an artist, and convert what you see onto paper.
Learn the fundamental skills of line, edges, spaces, tone and colour. Practice scaling images on grids, completing negative drawings, understand perspective, use shading and texturing, and control and manage different edges.
Students will gain a solid grasp of the colour wheel, and experiment with colour and tone using graphite, charcoal, ink and pastels.
At the end of this course you will be able to draw any subject with confidence, and have the basic skills in place to continue experimenting and extending your skills at home.
