This eight-week course follows the very successful Drawing for All! course which we ran this Autumn at the Arthouse. It will suit those who would like a follow-up to that course, or who are ready to get started afresh in 2017 and explore their hidden talent. The course will include an option to take drawing into painting, but will also cater for those who wish to concentrate purely on drawing. It will be suitable for beginners, those who wish to refresh current approaches, or for more experienced artists who would simply welcome a regular, dedicated drawing or painting session. Alison Cage, well-known local artist and teacher will work with you whatever your starting point. She will introduce you to a range of drawing and painting materials, techniques and skills and will also show you how to practise on your own. By the end of the course you will be able to use pencils, charcoal and coloured drawing and if you wish, painting materials, with confidence. You will have learned different approaches to mark making, investigating subject matter and expressing yourself.
Cost £85, including tea and coffee and use of some materials
